Kanyongo, Gibbs Y.; Certo, Janine; Launcelot, Brown I.
International Education Journal, v7 n4 p632-641 Sep 2006
In this study, we report results of a study examining the relationship between home environment factors and reading achievement in Zimbabwe. The study utilised data collected by the Southern and Eastern Africa Consortium for Monitoring Educational Quality (SACMEQ). The data were submitted to linear regression analysis through structural equation modelling using AMOS 4.0. In our results, we showed that a proxy for SES was the strongest predictor of reading achievement. (Contains 3 tables.)
