This study is concerned with the educational status of pupils in grades two through six of the Canaan Elementary School, Marshall, Texas, as measured by a series of objective tests, and with appraisal of socioeconomic factors which might tend to influence the present educational status of these pupils.
This study has been designed to answer the following questions: 1. In comparison with established norms, what is the educational status of the pupils in grades two through six of the Canaan Elementary School with respect to the content and tool subjects? 2. What are the mental maturity levels of these pupils as measured by the California Test of Mental Maturity? 3. What is the nature of the socio-economic factors which might tend to influence the learning of these pupils? 4. What are the implications of the findings in this study for the Canaan Elementary School?
The pupils of this study consisted of 27 boys and 28 girls of grades two through six. This made a total of 55 pupils. Grade one was not used in the study because those pupils had been in school only one month at the time the tests were administered. Grade seven and eight were not used in the study because they were classified, when compared with the other elementary schools of the system, as junior high school grades.
