Differences between over- and under-achieving classes in reading: teacher, classroom, andstudent characteristics
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
Since earlier research indicates a substantial linkage between SES and language background on the one hand and reading achievement on the other hand, in particular at school level, the focus in the first study was to explore factors influencing reading achievement beyond SES and language background (Scarborough, 1998).
The initial study had two aims. The first aim was to identify classes which were performing at higher and lower levels in reading than those which would be expected with regard to the students’ socio-economic and language background. The second aim was to find student, teacher, teaching and classroom characteristics which could be linked to classes over-achieving in reading.
