Summary

A study compared elementary school students' classroom reading achievement levels to their chronological ages, sex, race, and parents' educational levels. Subjects were 168 children in grades one through four. The results indicated that reading levels did covary with parent education levels, with an additional effect of race indicated. No main or interaction effects of sex were found. Students of parents with education levels above high school performed relatively better in reading than did students of parents with education levels of high school or lower. Minority group students of parents in both education level groups performed poorly in reading in relation to the majority group students. Another finding was that from first through fourth grade the students' reading achievement scores fell more and more below the norm. This might be attributed to the increased complexity of reading skills required in the upper grades. (FL)
