Summary

This is a longitudinal investigation of the intellectual growth of groups of Negro and white students. Multivarate analyses of variance were conducted for grades five, seven, nine, and 11 on student scores from STEP (Sequential Tests of Educational Progress), SCAT (School and College Ability Tests), and a measure of socio-economic status (SES) taken from the Background and Experience Questionnaire, all of which were administered as part of the Educational Testing Service Study of Academic Growth and Prediction. Some 316 Negro and 501 white students constituted the sample. The data indicated that: (1) test scores of white subjects were significantly higher than Negroes at grade five on all tests of SCAT, STEP, and a measure of SES; (2) when analyses of variance were used to equate on racial differences in SCAT and STEP, whites were found not only to start out higher, but to grow at a faster rate than Negroes on most battery tests; (3) both Negro and white subjects continued to grow and gain on all tests of SCAT and STEP; and (4) Negro academic students showed accelerated growth rates on reading and listening relative to white nonacademic students in one town, but not in the other.
