Abstract

The writer's purpose in this paper was to investigate the literature concerning contributing factors which limit the disadvantaged child in academic achievement as measured by standardized tests. The writer felt the urgency to make such an investigation as a result of seeing the comparison of scores obtained on a group IQ test versus those on an individual IQ test. The individual IQ test yielded substantial differences which appears to indicate that potential often exceeds performance depending on circumstances.
