The investigation with which this manuscript deals was effected to determine the degree of correlation between English and mathematics efficiency and success in the study of science at the Lincoln High School, Port Arthur, Texas. It is hoped that through this report a little more of the uncertainty can be eliminated from the prediction process.
The purposes of the problem were: 1. To determine the degree of correlation between science comprehension and English and mathematics efficiency. 2. To find factual information that will be useful in guiding and selecting science students.
This problem is restricted in scope in that it was limited by the following factors: 1. Only forty tenth grade senior high school students were used as subjects. 2. Chemistry and biology courses were the only scientific offerings given consideration. Lincoln High School, Port Arthur, Texas, was the only school involved. 4. Achievement during the school year 1958-59 formed the superstructure of the investigation.
