Durbrow, Eric H.; Schaefer, Barbara A.; Jimerson, Shane
School Psychology International, v23 n2 p155-68 May 2002
Study analyzed longitudinal data from village children (N=66) to identify accurate and early predictors of passing the Common Entrance Examination for secondary school admission. Determined that children's achievement, academic and behavior problems, and cognitive abilities as early as age 8 can predict later examination success or failure. Suggests interventions to reduce the rural and urban gap in secondary school admissions. (JDM)
