Predicting developmental outcomes at school entry using a multiple-risk model: four American communities. The Conduct Problems Prevention Research Group. (1/698)

The contributions of different risk factors in predicting children's psychological and academic outcomes at the end of 1st grade were examined. Using a regression model, levels of ecobehavioral risk were assessed in the following order: specific demographics, broad demographics, family psychosocial status, mother's depressive symptoms, and neighborhood quality. Participants were 337 families from 4 American communities. Predictor variables were assessed in kindergarten, and teacher, parent, and child outcomes (behavioral and academic) were assessed at the end of 1st grade. Results indicated that (a) each level of analysis contributed to prediction of most outcomes, (b) 18%-29% of the variance was predicted in outcomes, (c) a common set of predictors predicted numerous outcomes, (d) ethnicity showed little unique prediction, and (e) the quality of the neighborhood showed small but unique prediction to externalizing problems.  (+info)

Further analysis of the separate and interactive effects of methylphenidate and common classroom contingencies. (2/698)

We evaluated separate and interactive effects between common classroom contingencies and methylphenidate (MPH) on disruptive and off-task behaviors for 4 children with a diagnosis of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Analogue conditions consisting of contingent teacher reprimands, brief time-out, no interaction, and alone were conducted in a multielement design. Medication status (MPH or placebo) was alternated across days in a superordinate multielement design. Results indicate that (a) the behavioral effects of MPH were influenced by one or more of the analogue conditions for each participant, and (b) time-out was associated with zero or near-zero levels of both disruptive and off-task behavior for 3 of the 4 participants during MPH and placebo conditions. Implications for the clinical effectiveness of MPH and possible behavioral mechanisms of action of MPH in applied settings are discussed.  (+info)

Biochemical hypothyroidism secondary to iodine deficiency is associated with poor school achievement and cognition in Bangladeshi children. (3/698)

Iodine deficiency in pregnancy leads to poor cognitive function in the offspring; however, the effect of concurrent iodine deficiency on school-aged children is not clear. Several studies have shown that school children in iodine-deficient villages have poorer cognitive function than children in iodine-sufficient villages. However, villages differ in many factors that may also detrimentally affect children's development. In addition, the children's nutritional and health status has not usually been taken into account. In this study, we compared the cognitive function and school achievement levels of 170 children who had recently had low thyroxine (T4) levels [T4 /=70 nmol/L (euthyroid)]. The children were matched for school and grade level and came from the same iodine-deficient regions in rural Bangladesh. They were given a battery of cognitive, motor and school achievement tests. We also measured their nutritional status, examined their stools for geohelminths and assessed their home environments. A factor analysis of cognitive and motor function tests yielded two factors, a general cognitive factor and a fine motor factor. The children's height and arm circumference, experience of hunger, parental characteristics and stimulation in the home made independent contributions to their test scores. Controlling for these variables, the hypothyroid children performed worse than the euthyroid children on reading and spelling and the general cognitive factor. These findings indicate that a large number of disadvantages including hypothyroidism are related to the poor development of these children.  (+info)

A comparison of language achievement in children with cochlear implants and children using hearing aids. (4/698)

English language achievement of 29 prelingually deaf children with 3 or more years of cochlear implant (CI) experience was compared to the achievement levels of prelingually deaf children who did not have such CI experience. Language achievement was measured by the Rhode Island Test of Language Structure (RITLS), a measure of signed and spoken sentence comprehension, and the Index of Productive Syntax (IPSyn), a measure of expressive (signed and spoken) English grammar. When the CI users were compared with their deaf age mates who contributed to the norms of the RITLS, it was found that CI users achieved significantly better scores. Likewise, we found that CI users performed better than 29 deaf children who used hearing aids (HAs) with respect to English grammar achievement as indexed by the IPSyn. Additionally, we found that chronological age highly correlated with IPSyn levels only among the non-CI users, whereas length of CI experience was significantly correlated with IPSyn scores for CI users. Finally, clear differences between those with and without CI experience were found by 2 years of post-implant experience. These data provide evidence that children who receive CIs benefit in the form of improved English language comprehension and production.  (+info)

Adversity and psychosocial competence of South African children. (5/698)

Black children in South Africa commonly experience low socioeconomic status and community violence. Parents (N = 625) in a longitudinal study of urbanization responded to structured questionnaires related to resilience, affability, maturity, and school readiness of their six-year olds. SES was found to have an inverse and linear relation to competence at age six; the relationship to violence was curvilinear, with children from moderately safe communities achieving better outcomes than those from very safe or very unsafe ones.  (+info)

Contextual factors in substance use: a study of suburban and inner-city adolescents. (6/698)

Objectives in this research were to examine contextual differences in correlates of substance use among high school students. The focus was on two broad categories of adjustment indices: personal psychopathology (internalizing and externalizing problems) and behaviors reflecting social competence (academic achievement, teacher-rated classroom behaviors, and peer acceptance or rejection). Associations between drug use and each of these constructs were examined in two sociodemographically disparate groups: teens from affluent, suburban families (n = 264), and low socioeconomic status adolescents from inner-city settings (n = 224). Results indicated that suburban youth reported significantly higher levels of substance use than inner-city youth. In addition, their substance use was more strongly linked with subjectively perceived maladjustment indices. Comparable negative associations involving grades and teacher-rated behaviors were found in both groups, and among suburban males only, substance use showed robust positive associations with acceptance by peers. Results are discussed in terms of developmental perspectives on adolescent deviance, contextual socializing forces, and implications for preventive interventions and treatment.  (+info)

Truancy and perceived school performance: an alcohol and drug study of UK teenagers. (7/698)

This study is based on a subsample of 15- and 16-year-old school students from the UK, part of the European School Project on Alcohol and Other Drugs (ESPAD). Information was available on truancy rates, perceived school performance, family structure, lifestyle, and usage of alcohol, cigarettes and illicit drugs in 6409 teenagers. Living in a single-parent family, lack of constructive hobbies, presence of psychiatric symptoms, and an aggressive outgoing delinquent lifestyle bore the strongest associations to truancy and to perceived school performance. There were also strong relationships between both these last two variables and use of alcohol, cigarettes, and illicit drugs. However, the effects of alcohol, cigarettes, and illicit drugs were largely accounted for by other variables. Having at least one parent who both supported the respondent and who exercised some control was predictive of better perceived school performance.  (+info)

Intellectual, neuropsychological, and academic functioning in long-term survivors of leukemia. (8/698)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the effects of treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) on children's cognitive functioning. METHOD: Participants were long-term survivors of ALL treated with cranial irradiation and central nervous system (CNS) chemotherapy (n = 20), or CNS chemotherapy only (n = 21), healthy children (n = 21), and children with chronic asthma (n = 21). The groups were compared on measures of intellectual, neuropsychological, and academic functioning. RESULTS: CNS chemotherapy, with and without cranial irradiation, was associated with significantly lower levels of intellectual and academic functioning. Children with chronic asthma obtained lower scores than healthy controls, but these differences were not significant. Tests of neuropsychological functioning did not consistently separate the groups. CONCLUSIONS: CNS chemotherapy and, to a lesser extent, chronic illness both contribute to the poorer performance of long-term survivors of ALL on measures of intellectual and academic functioning.  (+info)

Infection with severe malaria in African children is associated with not only a high mortality but also a high risk of cognitive deficits. There is evidence that interventions done a few years after the illness are effective but nothing is known about those done immediately after the illness. We designed a study in which children who had suffered from severe malaria three months earlier were enrolled into a cognitive intervention program and assessed for the immediate benefit in cognitive, academic and behavioral outcomes. This parallel group randomised study was carried out in Kampala City, Uganda between February 2008 and October 2010. Sixty-one Ugandan children aged 5 to 12 years with severe malaria were assessed for cognition (using the Kaufman Assessment Battery for Children, second edition and the Test of Variables of Attention), academic skills (Wide Range Achievement Test, third edition) and psychopathologic behaviour (Child Behaviour Checklist) three months after an episode of severe malaria.
We examine the effect of alcohol exposure in utero on child academic achievement. As well as studying the effect of any alcohol exposure, we investigate the effect of the dose, pattern, and duration of exposure. We use a genetic variant in the maternal alcohol-metabolism gene ADH1B as an instrument for alcohol exposure, whilst controlling for the childs genotype on the same variant. We show that the instrument is unrelated to an extensive range of maternal and paternal characteristics and behaviours. OLS regressions suggest an ambiguous association between alcohol exposure in utero and childrens academic attainment, but there is a strong social gradient in maternal drinking, with mothers in higher socio-economic groups more likely to drink. In stark contrast to the OLS, the IV estimates show negative effects of prenatal alcohol exposure on child educational attainment. These results are very robust to an extensive set of model specifications. In addition, we show that that the effects are ...
Available test score evidence does not support the common claim that student achievement has declined. On the other hand, the existing evidence cannot be used to prove that student achievement has risen. This paper offers reasons why student achievement in the past cannot be compared accurately with student achievement today: (1) tests, curricula, and student populations change; (2) background data are unreliable; and (3) test administration is inconsistent. The paper also discusses three assessments that have commonly been used by those trying to compare student achievement over time--the College Boards Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT), the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS), and the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). The paper asserts that it is impossible to know exactly how much better or worse American students are doing today compared to students in the past. School improvement, while important and necessary, should not be based on the false belief in
skoolboy has explained, much more eloquently than I can, why achievement gaps matter even if the scores of white, African-American, Hispanic, and Asian students are all rising equally: There are a great many social institutions that sort and rank individuals on the basis of test scores and the competencies they represent. Most of these institutions dont have an unlimited number of positions or slots-rather, individuals are competing against one another for access. When these institutions rely on test scores, and there is an achievement gap among racial/ethnic groups on these tests, the lower-scoring group will be underrepresented. Raising everybodys scores...
Is Californias investment in needy students paying off? Few signs indicate achievement gap is closing, By Jessica Calefati, June 22, 2017, KQED: Californias new system for funding public education has pumped tens of billions of extra dollars into struggling schools, but theres little evidence yet that the investment is helping the most disadvantaged students. A CALmatters analysis of the biggest districts with the greatest clusters of needy children found limited success with the policys goal: to close the achievement gap between these students and their more privileged peers. Instead, results in most of those places show the gap is growing ...

Its not how smart students are but how motivated they are and how they study that determines their growth in math achievement. Thats the main finding of a study that looks at six annual waves of data from a German longitudinal study assessing math ability in 3,520 students in grades five to 10. Students who felt competent; were intrinsically motivated; and avoided rote learning showed more growth in math achievement than those who didnt.
Low math achievement among elementary school students is a concern because students who lack a strong early foundation in mathematics may experience difficulty learning in future mathematics classes. Students in 2 rural southeastern school districts demonstrated low math achievement in 5th grade and their scores declined from 3rd to 5th grade. In this quantitative study, teacher-related factors that research has shown to predict student achievement were examined using Banduras theory of self-efficacy and Ball and McDiarmids emerging theory of subject matter content knowledge. The research question asked whether the teacher factors, years of teaching experience, hours of professional development in math pedagogy, college math courses completed, math teacher preparation courses, and teaching efficacy, predicted student math achievement in the 2 districts. Data were collected from 29 3rd grade teachers and 32 5th grade teachers and analyzed using binary logistic regression. The findings showed that the Investigation of Reading Achievement as an Affective Determinant in the Perception of Verbal and Non-verbal Symbols ...

Its natural for a parent to want the best for their child. And that usually involves doing well at school. Here are four ways divorce can impact a childs academic achievements.
Research has shown that poverty is a greater predictor of educational disparities than race, despite the national focus on racial disparities. Further, living in disadvantaged neighborhoods that are characterized by qualities such as high poverty and unemployment can place a double burden on already poor students, further undermining educational achievement and future success. Neighborhood disadvantage is linked to a range of poor academic outcomes, yet only recently has research begun to explore the processes underlying the relationship between neighborhood disadvantage and these outcomes. Drawing on ecological theory, the following study proposes to examine how multiple settings relate to student outcomes. Given the importance of schools on student outcomes and the lack of attention given to schools in the neighborhood literature, this study will examine how school climate and school type relate to neighborhoods and student outcomes. Specifically, this study proposes that neighborhood disadvantage is
Research suggests there are factors that may exacerbate or otherwise serve as a protective factor for the effects being overweight. This study explores the association between BMI and adolescents academic achievement, and the moderating effects of individual-level (e.g., race/ethnicity) and socio-contextual factors (e.g., economic disadvantage) on this association. Furthermore, research suggests that overweight adolescents are at an increased risk of becoming overweight adults. As such, other developmental outcomes may be impacted as adolescents mature into young adulthood. Given this likelihood, the association between BMI and achievement over time was also tested. Findings suggests an overlapping sphere of influence on BMI and adolescents academic achievement, as well as a consistent effect of BMI on achievement as adolescents enter into young adulthood.
To the Editor:. The article Principals Criticized on Teacher-Retention Decisions (Aug. 8, 2012) contains the following statement about results issued in a report by TNTP, formerly The New Teacher Project: Of the teachers studied, the group identified a subset of about 20 percent as irreplaceables because their students made two or three more months worth of academic progress compared [with] those taught with the average teacher in the district. The statement is fundamentally flawed and represents a common misunderstanding fostered by the testing industry, which prefers to report results in months and years of achievement when all they have is the number of items scored as correct on a particular test: the raw score.. We do not know what an achievement test measures. A persons score on a test of general mental ability and the persons score on an achievement test, which is supposed to reflect what a student has learned in school, are almost interchangeable. A person scoring high on one ...

There has been much written about the educational challenges facing the United States of America today. These challenges include, but are not limited, to educational inequity, low test scores, teacher competency and training, and achievement gaps. An era of standards-based reform and comprehensive school reform evolved as a reaction to these challenges. There is also an increase in assessment and accountability of student progress as a part of these educational reform measures. Key elements to school reform include effectively utilizing and collecting data. This includes using data to monitor student achievement and hold districts, schools, and educators accountable for student progress. This also includes making the teacher an integral part of the reform process.; The purpose of this study is to evaluate the design, implementation, and adequacy of data usage to improve student academic achievement in three cases at the district, school, and elementary classroom levels. Three research questions ...
We also investigate differences among students based on their race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status, and find more similarities than differences. This suggests that changes to start times will affect all students rather than just certain demographic groups. We also look at whether start times have a transitory or permanent effect on academic achievement and find that the short-term and long-term effects of later start times are similar to one another. In the long run, the effect is larger for adolescents than for younger students in both subjects, although the difference is not statistically significant in reading. The bottom line is that changes to start times improve math and reading achievement within a year of the change in sunlight exposure for adolescents, and the effects largely persist over time.. Showing up ready-or just showing up?. There are (at least) two reasons why school start times might affect academic achievement. First, later start times relative to sunrise may make it ...

Background: Scholars and policymakers have criticized public education in developed countries for perpetuating health and income disparities. Several studies have examined the ties between green space and academic performance, hypothesizing that green space can foster performance, and, over time, help reduce such disparities. Although numerous reviews have analyzed the link between nature and child health, none have focused on academic achievement. Methods: We identified 13 peer-reviewed articles that examined associations between academic outcomes, types of green spaces, and distances in which green spaces were measured around schools. Results: Of the 122 findings reported in the 13 articles, 64% were non-significant, 8% were significant and negative, and 28% were significant and positive. Positive findings were limited to greenness, tree cover, and green land cover at distances up to 2000 m around schools. End-of-semester grades and college preparatory exams showed greater shares of positive

Studies in the US have found that both exposure to environmental toxins and childrens general health status negatively impact childrens academic achievement. This thesis will be made of up two papers. The first examines the impact of exposure to residential air toxins from a variety of sources on students academic achievement and the second paper incorporates a measure of childrens general health status into the statistical model from the first paper. This thesis employs National Air Toxics Assessment (NATA) risk estimates from a variety of sources and individual-level data collected through a mail survey of fourth and fifth grade school children in El Paso (Texas, USA). Results indicate that both higher levels of residential air toxins are statistically significantly associated with lower grade point averages, even when controlling for caretaker-reported general health status, meaning that there is an independent effect of air pollution on childrens academic achievement outcomes that cannot be
The academic achievement, of children and young people is an issue that concerns governments in many countries. In Nigeria, students performance on standardised examinations has been troublingly low, especially among those from the north of the country. Previous studies on students achievement have focused on inadequate funding, infrastructural decay, parental background factors and pedagogical issues. However, this study considers the psychological aspects of attainment, looking at the relationships between self-concept, locus of control, school motivation, academic achievement and other contextual factors (such as gender) that are likely to have an impact on students performance in school. The aim is to identify some of the factors contributing to low performance in order to generate empirical evidence to inform policy and practice. The study adopts a cross sectional research design with a sequential mixed method approach to data collection and analysis. Standardised questionnaires are used ...
Arts Corps is not just about arts education. As it turns out, our work increasingly sits at the heart of a major tension in education-namely, a profound disagreement about what it will take to achieve equity in education.. Today we hear a lot of talk about the achievement gap. The achievement gap generally refers to the lower academic performance of youth of color and youth from low-income communities as compared to their middle income and white peers on standardized high stakes tests in math and reading. This disparity is real, and most definitely points to a grave concern about equity in education.. It is ironic, however, that the policy efforts that seek to address this achievement gap with a targeted focus on test score improvement, such as those that have dominated education reform efforts for the past 40 years and encoded in federal and local education policy, often manage to increase inequality in education.. Let me give you an example. I have a five-year-old son who is excited, and a ...
Meta-analysis techniques for integrating research findings are utilized in this report to determine the magnitude of the relationship between socioeconomic status (SES) and academic achievement. Also investigated are the factors which contribute to the large amount of variance in previously reported correlations between these two variables. Over 100 studies yielding 636 correlation coefficients are included in the meta-analysis. Findings indicate that the relationship between SES and academic achievement is probably much weaker than many people have assumed. Findings also indicate that the variance in reported correlations between SES and academic achievement are due to the fact that most of the significant variables which influence the strength of the correlation are directly under the researchers control. Recommendations concerning the most appropriate way of using measures of SES in future research applications are made. (Author/EB)
BACKGROUND: Although studies in neonatal animals show that anesthetics have neurotoxic effects, relevant human evidence is limited. We examined whether children who had surgery during infancy showed deficits in academic achievement.. METHODS: We attempted to contact parents of 577 children who, during infancy, had one of three operations typically performed in otherwise healthy children. We compared scores on academic achievement tests with population norms.. RESULTS: Composite scores were available for 287 patients. The mean normal curve equivalent score was 43.0 ± 22.4 (mean ± SD), lower than the expected normative value of 50, P , 0.0001 by one-sample Student t test; and 35 (12%) had scores below the 5th percentile, more than expected, P , 0.00001 by binomial test. Of 133 patients who consented to participate so that their scores could be examined in relation to their medical records, the mean score was 45.9 ± 22.9, P = 0.0411; and 15 (11%) scored below the 5th percentile, P = 0.0039. Of ...
OBJECTIVE-To examine academic achievement in children with diabetes and to identify predictors of achievement.. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS-Participants were 244 children, ages 8-18 years, with type 1 diabetes. Measures included school-administered standardized achievement tests (Iowa Tests of Basic Skills and Iowa Tests of Educational Development [ITBS/ITED]), grade point averages (GPAs), school absences, behavioral assessment, age at disease onset, hospitalizations, and HbA1c. Statistical differences between subgroups of children were evaluated using t test and ANOVA, statistically controlling for socioeconomic status. Regression analyses were carried out to examine predictors of academic performance.. RESULTS-Reading scores and GPA were lower for children with poor metabolic control than for children with average control. Children with hospitalizations for hyperglycemia had lower overall achievement scores than children with better metabolic control and fewer hospitalizations for ...
Criterion-based assessment is a form of outcomes assessment that identifies the extent of learner achievement at an appropriate end-point of study. Although assessment - as part of the learning program - is continuous, much of it is formative, and is done to help learners identify what they need to do to attain the maximum benefit from their study of the course. Therefore, assessment for summative reporting to TASC will focus on what both teacher and learner understand to reflect end-point achievement.. The standard of achievement each learner attains on each criterion is recorded as a rating A, B, or C, according to the outcomes specified in the standards section of the course.. A t notation must be used where a learner demonstrates any achievement against a criterion less than the standard specified for the C rating.. A z notation is to be used where a learner provides no evidence of achievement at all.. Providers offering this course must participate in quality assurance processes ...
Comedians have the Friars Club Roast, actors receive lifetime achievement Oscars, but in the world of math, a distinguished career is honored by a big gathering of very smart people. Mathematicians honor their own with academic conferences. They gather to talk shop, present new ideas and most of all, share their passion for the theorems and equations that make the vital stuff of the world work.. UMBC mathematics and statistics professor Thomas I. Seidman recently celebrated his 70th birthday and 35th year of service to the University in high style. 92 of his peers from 26 universities and three foreign countries came to campus to honor his work with the conference Advances in Control of Partial Differential Equations.

Education inequity is a persistent reality of American culture. As early as kindergarten, there are marked differences in academic performance between racial minority students and their peers. These differences are sustained as students progress through school.. One aspect of students social experience that may help to explain the gap is school climate. A positive school climate has been associated with higher levels of school achievement. Thus, differences in how students of different races experience various aspects of school climate may help explain group differences in achievement.. Recent research studies, conducted by WestEds Health & Justice Program staff and summarized in this report, examined connections between student race, achievement, and school climate in California schools.. The collective findings of these studies support the notion that, just as there is a racial achievement gap, there is a racial school-climate gap in California schools. ...

|p| Purpose. The main purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of family environmental factors on student athletes featuring different levels of sports accomplishment: 1) a low level - no significant achievements (|italic|N |/italic|= 46), 2) a medium level - significant achievements at a regional level (|italic|N |/italic|= 86) and 3) a high level - significant achievements at national and/or international level (|italic|N |/italic|= 33). Methods. The participants were administered a demographic survey and the Athletes Family Environment Questionnaire (AFEQ). Results. One-way ANOVA found that the high achievers families differ from the medium- and low-level achievers in five (out of nine) of the studied family environment factors: children as an important value in family life, sport as an important value in family life, parents involvement in their childs sports career, the overall genetic-environmental conditioning of their childs talent and passion for sports, as well as
The results of structural equation modeling revealed a close model fit for the hypothesized model, which indicates that higher levels of self-determination were positively associated with habituated exercise behavior. In turn, exercise habit strength fostered academic achievement and buffered the debilitative effect of stress, depression, and anxiety on student academic performance. The analysis of model invariance revealed a nonsignificant difference between male and female subjects. ...
The school responds well to Māori and other children whose learning and achievement need acceleration.. Overall, the achievement data at the end of 2016 is lower than national expectations for reading, writing and mathematics. In response, teachers are currently involved in targeted professional learning (PLD) to raise student achievement in mathematics and writing. This PLD is increasing teachers understanding and use of current best practices.. School achievement data shows little disparity for Māori and Pacific children. The school has identified an increasing number of five-year old children arriving with significant oral language needs, which then impact on their progress in reading and writing. Well-planned and researched learning programmes are being used to address this. Student achievement information shows that by Year 4 many of these children have caught up with learning expectations.. Children who need additional learning support to succeed in their learning are identified early. ...
The clear associations between fitness and academic achievement highlighted in the report underline the importance of educating the whole child, said Santiago Taveras, Deputy Chancellor I.A. of the DOEs Office of Teaching and Learning. Under Mayor Bloomberg, the Health Department and the Department of Education have formed a unique partnership to address critical issues in the areas of public health and public education, said Dr. Roger Platt, director of the Office of School Health, which is jointly run by the two agencies. This dual-agency collaboration is a model for how a comprehensive approach to student wellness can help support both student health and academic achievement. Our students need high-quality fitness and health education in order to succeed in school and in life, said Lori Rose Benson, director of Department of Educations Office of Fitness and Health Education. The results of this study reinforce the importance of the work that teachers and administrators throughout ...

Low-income children tend to do poorly on academic achievement tests, the centerpiece of the No Child Left Behind Act. A pilot study from Childrens Hospital Bos
Education research over the last 50 years has found a significant relationship between academic achievement and kindergarten entrance age, with kindergarten students who enter school at the earliest ages tending to have lower academic achievement than their counterparts. Other studies have found that student achievement depends on factors such as class attendance rates and socioeconomic factors. Indeed, one issue consistently identified in education research as having a strong correlation to student achievement is student attendance, which makes intuitive sense because students must be present and engaged in school to learn. National research confirms that not only do attendance rates negatively impact student learning in the affected school year, but that students who are chronically absent as early as kindergarten have lower achievement in later grades as well. Since there can be a wide age span for students entering kindergarten, there is reason to also examine the relationship between kindergarten
During those dozen years, metro districts added about 300 minority teachers, barely moving the percentage of people of color leading classrooms in the Twin Cities. In the metro area, 94 percent of teachers are white. Charter schools do better diversifying their teaching staffs, but the schools have seen a decline in minority teachers and students as the number of charters has increased. In 2012, 11 percent of teachers in metro charter schools were minorities and 57 percent of the students were races other than white. Thats a decline from 2001, when 20 percent of teachers and 65 percent of students in metro charter schools were minorities. Minnesota is not alone in the struggle to bring diversity to the teaching ranks. A federal survey from 2008, the latest data available, found that nationwide, just 17 percent of educators were minorities while 40 percent of the countrys students were children of color. Every state in the nation has a diversity gap between the percentage of minority students ...
Results Longer gestation from 23 to 45 weeks was associated with lower risk of poor literacy and numeracy. Adjusted relative risks for being at or below national minimum standard ranged from 1.12 (95% CI 1.03 to 1.22) for late preterm (32-36 weeks) for numeracy, to 1.84 (95% CI 1.48 to 2.30) for early preterm (23-31 weeks) for writing. Within term, every additional week of gestational age was associated with small decreased risks of poor literacy and numeracy (eg, relative risks for poor numeracy 1.10, 95% CI 1.01 to 1.20 for 37 weeks). Population-attributable fractions for poor achievement were highest among children born early term (37-39 weeks) due to their higher population prevalence. ...

Using data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth Child Files, we found that parental report on 12 characteristics of two-year old children can be compiled into a summary index that is predictive of early academic achievement. With further validation, this index could be used in clinical practices as a tool to assess risk for early school failure among preschool children and to assist clinicians in determining the scope and depth of needed preventive care services. This is the first step in a research program whose overarching goal is to assist clinicians in tailoring pediatric preventive care to individual child needs.. The next step in this research program is to test the validity, feasibility and utility of this risk index in a pediatric ambulatory care setting. The instruments predictive ability is only useful if it can feasibly be administered both effectively and efficiently. To date, we have successfully field-tested an expanded and modified version of this instrument in a ...

Our data provide evidence that physical activity and obesity mediate the association between childhood motor function and adolescents academic achievement. Compromised motor function in childhood may serve as a significant underlying factor for the effects of obesity and physical inactivity on academic underachievement, which has recently attracted attention as a growing global education and public health concern (4). Poor motor activity in the early school years can contribute to setting the child on a negative developmental trajectory.. There is a growing body of literature demonstrating that lifestyle factors such as excess sedentary behavior and an unhealthy diet may compromise childrens cognitive and academic performance (4, 5). Our results partly support previous findings indicating that overweight and obesity (19, 20), especially overconsumption of energy (11, 21) and excess body fat content (22), are adversely linked to cognitive and academic performance in children and youths. On the ...

Academic achievement in adolescents is correlated with 1-carbon metabolism (1-CM), as folate intake is positively related and total plasma homocysteine (tHcy) negatively related to academic success. Because another 1-CM nutrient, choline is essential for fetal neurocognitive development, we hypothesized that choline and betaine could also be positively related to academic achievement in adolescents. In a sample of 15-yr-old children (n = 324), we measured plasma concentrations of homocysteine, choline, and betaine and genotyped them for 2 polymorphisms with effects on 1-CM, methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) 677C,T, rs1801133, and phosphatidylethanolamine N-methyltransferase (PEMT), rs12325817 (G,C). The sum of school grades in 17 major subjects was used as an outcome measure for academic achievement. Lifestyle and family socioeconomic status (SES) data were obtained from questionnaires. Plasma choline was significantly and positively associated with academic achievement independent of ...

Downloadable (with restrictions)! In this paper the controversial educational topic of class size reduction is addressed. Controlling for a large number of observable characteristics and potential endogeneity in the class size variable, an educational production function is estimated using a quantile regression technique. The conventional wisdom that class size reduction is a viable means to increase scholastic achievement is discounted. Rather, the results point towards a far stronger peer effect through which class size reduction may play an important role. Due to heterogeneity in the newly identified peer effect, class size reduction is shown to be a potentially regressive policy measure.
This paper reports on the childs perception of parental involvement and the effect it has on grades in mathematics, science, social studies, and language arts. The study specifically involved the relationship between the value the children perceive the parents place on education and the value the children themselves place on education, the relationship between the childs perception of parents helping the child with homework in the elementary and middle school years and the amount of time the child spends on homework in high school, and the relationship between the childrens perception of expectations the parents have for him/her and the expectations the children place on themselves. Questionnaires were given to 102 9th graders. The data was analyzed using correlation analyses and a one way analysis of variance (ANOVA). Implications for parents and educators are also noted ...
The Anatomy of Achievement Gaps offers a critical analysis of underachievement problems in American education from interdisciplinary, international, and systems perspectives.
Participation in school sports may be, for many students, as important as the degree of success attained in the classroom. This study investigated the relationships between academic achievement, athletic achievement, self-concept, locus of control, and achievement motivation. The Tennessee Self Concept Scale, Locus of Control Scale for Children, Achievement-Related Affect Scale, and Measure of Achievement Motivation were administered to 130 male and 59 female urban high school students. Of these, 79 participated in school sports and were called school sport participants, while the remaining 110 did not and were termed school sport nonparticipants. Academic achievement was defined as the students grade point averages, and athletic achievement was assessed by a newly developed 31-item scale in which coaches rated the school sport participants. Academic achievement and athletic achievement were not significantly associated, but athletic achievement was positively related to self-concept (p $|$.03). School
The course is primarily an introduction to the academic study of Art History, and secondly, it aims to ease the transition from secondary education to studying at the university. The course starts with an introduction week in which the students will gain insights into what the field of study entails. Furthermore, they receive instructions about the universitys digital learning environment. The students acquaint themselves with the visual nature of the discipline of art history through visits to museums, collections and monuments.. After the introduction week at the beginning of the semester, students become aware of the academic nature of the discipline in the first seven weeks by means of seminars on primary sources, secondary literature and the use of library and documentation facilities. The course objective is to introduce students to academic skills by analysing texts and writing assignments.. In addition, students follow two lectures of two hours each, provided by the EAV Expertise Center ...
TY - JOUR AU - Ivanović, Lidija AU - Ilić-Stošović, Danijela AU - Nikolić, Snežana AU - Medenica, Veselin PY - 2019 UR - AB - Background/Aim. Studies that investigated the presence of soft neurological signs in terms of neuromotor immaturity and impact on the ability of reading, writing and calculation are rare. At school age, cognitive development in children of the typical population is monitored over, while much less was focused on motor development. This is one of the important reasons for conducting this research. The aim of this study is to determine whether neuromotor immaturity of children poses a risk for the adoption of the basic academic skills in school children. Most authors investigated the presence of dysgraphia, dyslexia and dyscalculia in clinically diagnosed conditions. Methods. The data were obtained by testing. To assess neuromotor maturity, The Developmental Screening Test was used. The quality of handwriting was ...
The aim of this study was to identify the specific cognitive, motivational and behavioural predictors of two measures of university students academic achievement (grade point average and student efficacy status), after controlling for dispositional variables and student adjustment at the beginning of college. A representative sample of 250 undergraduate students was followed over a period of 3 years. Hierarchical regression analysis and logistic regression analysis were conducted to check the contribution of the included variables. The hypothesized significant role of cognitive, behavioural and motivational factors in students academic achievement has been confirmed, with the automatic thoughts related to the fear of disappointing parents and time and study environment management skills as the most pronounced predictors for both criteria. Outcome expectation is a significant predictor of the students efficacy status only, while action control beliefs and goal orientations (performance and ...
Childrens reading achievement is influenced by genetics as well as by family and school environments. The importance of teacher quality as a specific school environmental influence on reading achievement is unknown. We studied first- and second-grade students in Florida from schools representing diverse environments. Comparison of monozygotic and dizygotic twins, differentiating genetic similarities of 100% and 50%, provided an estimate of genetic variance in reading achievement ...
Downloadable (with restrictions)! We examine birth order effects on academic achievement for ten-year-old students using data for the entire population of fifth graders in Norway 2007/2008. The analysis thus adds to a thin empirical literature focusing on birth order effects among young children. We find that being firstborn confers a significant advantage in families with two, three and four children. The analysis makes two other contributions. First, we provide evidence that unless mothers age at childbirth is included among the control variables, only small and imprecise birth order effects are revealed in families with low socioeconomic status. Second, we provide some evidence that the birth order effects differ across families with highly educated and less educated mothers, which lend support to the resource dilution model over the confluence model.
Age and sex differences were tested with structural equation modeling (SEM). The results support a reciprocal effects model, indicating that academic achievement has an effect on academic self-concept (skill development model) and that academic self-concept has an effect on academic achievement (self-enhancement model). Significantly different relationships were found for boys and girls, suggesting a reciprocal effects model for boys and a skill development model for girls. The discussion centers on methodological and theoretical issues. Practical implications are discussed briefly ...
IMPACT OF MALNUTRITION ON STUDENTS ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE IN PRIMARY SCHOOL PUPILS. CHAPTER ONE. INTRODUCTION. Background of the study. Food is one of the basic needs of man. Our body needs food to do its work. Food is vital to life and may be any solid or liquid substance which when eaten and digested by the body, provides it with necessary materials to enable it grow, replace worn-out and damaged parts and to function normally. The human body is like a complex piece of machinery in that it is prone to faults and weaknesses if it is poorly maintained. This can happen if the daily food intake is in any unbalanced form. Again, any nutritious substance that people or animal eat or drink, or that plants absorb, in order to maintain life and growth (Wikipedia, 2011). In essence, food is made up of nutrients.. Food and nutrition is one of the branches of Home Economics which deals with food and its nutrients. It includes food processing, presentation, food preparation, meal management ...
This study examined abstract reasoning ability as a predictor of success in high school algebra controlling for age, motivation, and previous math achievement. A valid and reliable instrument, the Abstract Reasoning Assessment (ARA), a matrix completion instrument based upon a protocol by Embretson (1998), was developed for the study. Motivation was measured using the Personal Achievement Goal Orientations scale (Midgeley, 2000). Previous math achievement was measured using the course grade from the previous years math course. Success in algebra was measured by the final exam grade from a first year high school algebra course. 220 ninth grade students took part in the study. A multiple regression analysis found that abstract reasoning ability explained a significant proportion of the variance in high school algebra performance beyond that explained by previous math achievement, motivation and age. Further, based on effect size, abstract reasoning was a better predictor than previous math ...
There continues to be a large disparity between the reading achievement of Hispanic students and their White counterparts in the USA. Previous studies have revealed that Hispanic students enter preschool with weaker literacy skills than their White peers which in turn results in poorer academic achievement in Hispanics. The disparity in reading achievement of Hispanic and White students has been attributed to both societal and cultural factors with the most common factors being race, poverty, timing of exposure to English, and dual language learning (DLL). Many previous studies on the Hispanic population tend to focus on school-aged children who are already able to read. Not many have focused on emergent literacy development in young DLLs as they progress from preschool to elementary school. Previous studies have assumed that the development of language and literacy is similar for monolinguals and bilinguals, but this has not been well established by empirical research. The present longitudinal study
This studys aim was to investigate whether self-determined behaviour and achievement motivation impact learners academic performance. Convenient geographic sampling was used to select three pnmary schools in Soshanguve. A likert type questionnaire was used to collect data from 120 learners. Item analyses were preformed to investigate the reliability of subscales. Three hypotheses were tested using analysis of variance and Pearson product moment correlations. The first, which predicted that intrinsic motivation is positively related to academic achievement, was not supported. Both intrinsically and extrinsically motivated learners achieved better in academic tasks than amotivated learners. The second, which predicted a negative correlation between extrinsic motivation extrinsic motivation and academic performance, was also not supported. The third, which predicted that there is a negative correlation between amotivation and academic performance, was confirmed. General conclusions, ...
Good Time Management and Motivation Level Predict Student Academic Success in College On-Line Courses: 10.4018/ijcbpl.2014070104: Student academic success in college on-line courses was examined in relation to motivation, time-management and organzation. Participants included 40 students
Abstract: In education, the government has raised the bar related to expectations placed upon school districts to ensure that school letter grades are high, schools meet growth measures, and proficiency increases. While the bar is heightened, so is the student achievement gap between white students and students of color. Currently, there is not an existing policy, program, or practice that has resulted in the achievement gap closing. Therefore, instead of looking for external solutions, school leaders must look within their school buildings to identify what perceptions, biases, attitudes, and beliefs educators bring with them into the school that influence the work they do with students, especially those within marginalized populations. Deficit thinking is the practice of holding lower expectations for students with demographic, linguistic, and socioeconomic characteristics that do not align with the American dream, also known as the American way. Deficit thinking asserts that the low academic ...
Clinicians looking to obtain an accurate overview of an individuals academic skills can now welcome a new assessment to their toolkit the Academic Achievement Battery (AAB ) by Melissa A.
In this study, the schema-theoretic perspective of understanding general discourse was extended to include graph comprehension. Fourth graders (n = 204) and seventh graders (n = 185) were given a prior-knowledge inventory, a graph test, and the SRA Reading and Mathematics Achievement Tests during four testing sessions. The unique predictors of graph comprehension for Grade 4 included reading achievement, mathematics achievement, and prior knowledge of the topic, mathematical content, and form of the graph. The unique predictors for Grade 7 were the same except that prior knowledge of topic and graphical form were not included. The results suggest that children should be involved in graphing activities to build and expand relevant schemata needed for comprehension,. ...

Sixty-five children born to women who all abused amphetamine during pregnancy have been followed prospectively since their birth in 1976-77. At the age of 14-15 years, information about growth and school achievement was collected from school records. For comparison of school achievements the means of schoolmates were used, and for growth a group of Stockholm children born in the same year. By the age of 14 years only 14 children (22%) had stayed with their biological mothers for the whole period since birth. In the eighth grade, 10 (15%) were one grade lower than indicated by their biological age. The norm for Sweden is less than 5%. The means of the points in mathematics, Swedish language and sports were statistically below those of their classmates. At the age of 10 years the girls were significantly shorter and lighter than their peers born in 1976. At the age of 14 years the boys were statistically taller and heavier than their peers. It can be concluded that maternal amphetamine abuse ...
School leaders and trustees use student achievement information well to set priorities for improving student outcomes. They have further refined these processes over the past two years. They collect and use a range of achievement information to inform strategic goals, programme development and initiatives to improve engagement and achievement of groups of students across the school.. Since 2012 there have been steady improvements in National Certificates of Education Achievement (NCEA) results, particularly at Levels 2 and 3 and for University Entrance, where achievement has mostly been well above schools of similar type. Boys achievement at all NCEA levels has improved to be well above their peers from similar types of schools.. NCEA Level 1 rates of achievement, while above those of similar schools, have declined during that time. Leaders identify the need to use a range of more effective strategies, programmes and interventions to reverse this trend.. Measures to increase percentages of NCEA ...
Determining a childs best daily balance of sleep, activity and relaxation can be a challenge, but if youre hoping to improve their academic results, then its time to cut back on chores and chill time, according to new research from the University of South Australia.
A new study indicates that playing video games for a limited amount of time each week may provide benefits to children, but too much can be detrimental. The findings are published in the Annals of Neurology.. Theres much debate over the potential benefits and risks of video gaming in children and teens. To provide some clarity, Jesus Pujol, MD, of the Hospital del Mar in Spain, and his colleagues investigated the relationship between weekly video game use and certain cognitive abilities and conduct-related problems.. In their study of 2442 children aged 7 to 11 years, the researchers found that playing video games for one hour per week was associated with better motor skills and higher school achievement scores, but no further benefits were observed in children playing more than two hours each week.. The team also found that weekly time spent gaming was steadily linked with conduct problems, peer conflicts, and reduced social abilities, with such negative effects being especially prominent in ...

Kindergarten- Grade 2 materials for the Core Knowledge Language Arts (CKLA) program have already been developed and piloted in New York City schools and schools in six other states. Pilot data show CKLA students made statistically significant greater gains in reading achievement, compared to control students using other approaches (balanced literacy and Reading First programs).. Funding is needed to develop and field test CKLA materials for later elementary grades, with immediate focus on completing materials for Grade 3 and preschool. The program consists of two parts: (1) a superior decoding and encoding phonics-based program, and (2) a carefully planned sequence of engaging texts, initially presented orally, designed to impart the knowledge and vocabulary most critical to comprehension and the narrowing of achievement gaps. Relevant background knowledge increases fluency, broadens vocabulary, and enables deeper comprehension. CKLA embeds the teaching of content within the language arts block, ...
Kindergarten readiness refers to the developmental domains that contribute to childrens ability to adapt to the kindergarten classroom, which is often a new and unfamiliar environment. There is no single agreed upon definition of Kindergarten readiness. The domains often included in the definition include, academic skills (e.g., early literacy and mathematics understanding, etc.), social-emotional development (e.g., self-regulation, prosocial behaviour, etc.), and physical development (e.g., motor development, sensory development, etc.). In addition to these competencies, the childs environment and opportunities for learning should also be considered. This includes the childs home environment and their interactions with teachers and peers. When assessing childrens readiness for kindergarten, much of the discussion is focused on the emergence of basic academic skills, including reading, writing, and arithmetic, which are commonly referred to as the three Rs (United States Department of ...
By Stephanie Liou. Greg Walton, assistant professor of psychology (Photo by Linda A. Cicero / Stanford News Service). Like a gnawing stomach or pesky runny nose, a looming stereotype can make it difficult to focus and perform well in school. Based on existing research, black students, Latinos, and women in math and science are known to perform poorly when a mistake could seem to confirm a negative stereotype about their group.. A new study by Stanford psychologists has found that negative stereotypes can also prevent minority students from learning new academic material. But alleviating concerns about stereotypes dramatically improves black students learning.. The idea that a persons work might suffer if he or she believes a poor performance will reinforce a negative stereotype about that persons group is known as stereotype threat. Studies have shown that stereotype threat is a likely cause of educational achievement gaps.. What hadnt been done was to see whether the same stereotype ...

McGill one of eight Canadian universities to receive funding from HSBC. By McGill Reporter staff. Mia Morisset, a BCom student at the Desautels Faculty of Management, has been named as a recipient of an HSBC Women in Business Leadership Award - a new, $20,000 scholarship established at Desautels and designed to encourage emerging female Canadian business leaders.. The initiative serves as a reminder that women remain surprisingly underrepresented in the top ranks of the Canadian corporate world. In 2010, women made up 47.3 per cent of the Canadian workforce, but held only 17.7 per cent of senior officer positions at Financial Post 500 companies, according to a survey by Catalyst, a non-profit organization that conducts research on women at work. More than 30 per cent of companies in the study had no women senior officers.. The HSBC Awards will be granted to four female students at Desautels over a five-year period beginning in the current academic year. Selection is based on academic achievement ...
A new study shows that successful implementation of preschool-to-third-grade programs yields benefits in increasing school readiness, improving attendance, and strengthening parental involvement in school education-strategies that can close the achievement gap for children at risk.. Scaling and sustaining effective early childhood programs through school-family-university collaboration was published in the September/October 2017 issue of Child Development by Arthur Reynolds, professor of child development, and colleagues in the Human Capital Research Collaborative (HCRC).. The Child-Parent Center Preschool to Third Grade program (CPC P-3) is a collaborative school reform model designed to improve school achievement and family engagement from ages three to nine. The program provides small classes, intensive learning experiences, menu-based parent involvement, and professional development in co-located sites. In the study, investigators evaluated evidence from two longitudinal studies, the ...
The C-STEM program has shown great promise in closing the math achievement gap for schools with a large percentage of underrepresented groups.. Hillcrest High School in Alvord Unified School District is a suburban school located in the southern region of Riverside, CA. The student population of 1,788 students is comprised of 65% Hispanic/Latino, 17% White, 7 % African American, 6% Asian, and 3% Filipino, with the remaining 2% unknown. Many of their students come from low income families and parents who have not completed a high school education. 63% of the students participate in a free or reduced-fee lunch program and 16% are English language learners. Under the leadership of Principal Jennifer Radeka, the school in 2014-2015 completed their first full academic year of C-STEM integration. Ms. Radeka says, As principal of Hillcrest High School, it was my great pleasure to have our teachers attended the three-day on-site workshop in January 2014 on C-STEM Common Core Mathematics with Computing ...

Some of what kids are dealing with is beyond what schools can affect, she says. We need to find ways that schools can beat their demographic odds.. McDermotts research highlights a fascinating and tragic irony. In many cases, demographic divisions and inequalities in our public schools have become more deeply entrenched-and in some places even institutionalized-precisely because government officials were trying to equalize expectations and improve student achievement.. In a 2012 book chapter titled Interstate Governance of Standards and Testing, McDermott explains that national education standards became law in the 1980s with the expectation that common benchmarks for students would result in streamlined professional development materials for teachers. If teachers around the country used similar lessons and had consistent goals, the assumption was that students from every demographic group in every part of the country would have the same shot at meeting the national standards.. In practice, ...

One of the bestselling childrens books of all time, this simple story of peace and contentment has withstood the test of many generations. Ferdinand is a little bull who much prefers sitting quietly under a cork tree -- just smelling the flowers --to jumping around, snorting, and butting heads with other bulls. This cow is no coward --he simply has his priorities clear. As Ferdinand grows big and strong, his temperament remains mellow, until the day he meets with the wrong end of a bee. In a show of bovine irony, the one day Ferdinand is most definitely not sitting quietly under the cork tree (due to a frightful sting), is the selfsame day that five men come to choose the biggest, fastest, roughest bull for the bullfights in Madrid. Ferdinands day in the arena gives readers not only an education in the historical tradition of bullfighting, but also a lesson in nonviolent tranquility.
