Summary

The differences in California Achievement Test (CAT) scores from 1990 to 1991 in seventh graders, currently enrolled in Albritton Junior High School in the Fort Bragg Schools, of deployed and nondeployed fathers were analyzed. CAT percentile scores from 1990 and 1991 (1991 being the year of "Desert Storm") were obtained in reading, math and language for 158 children (82 females and 76 males). A questionnaire was completed by the parents which identified those students who had a parent deployed to the Middle East for Operation Desert Storm. The results showed a decrease in the average reading score for females of both deployed and nondeployed parents from 1990 to 1991. A statistically significant decrease was noted in average reading scores for the females of deployed fathers; however, there was no statistically significant difference in CAT scores for any other area among males or females. A figure and a table present data and statistical analysis. (Contains 19 references.) (Author/TS)
