Summary

The International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) conducted cross-cultural surveys of educational achievement in six subject areas: reading, science, literature, civics, French as a foreign language, and English as a foreign language. Each of the surveys contained items which measured the extent to which parents interact with students on educational and related matters. This paper uses a variety of statistical techniques to assess the contributions of those home environment variables to students' attitudes and achievements, correlations being higher for 14-year-olds than for 10-year-olds. The analyses which indicate that the relationships among the variables change over time are discussed, and other pertinent data are examined. (Author)
