Used hierarchical linear modeling and longitudinal data from the first three waves of the National Education Longitudinal Study to examine achievement and growth rates in precollege science by racial, ethnic, and gender subgroups. Findings show socioeconomic status and previous grades to be strongly related to eighth-grade achievement across all racial-ethnic by gender subgroups. Also discusses findings about growth rate and the relationships between individual factors and science growth rate. (SLD)
