An analysis of academic achievement among grades 7 to 11 students in a Northwestern Ontario band-controlled school Senior, Sharon
The main purposes of this study were to determine if there were (a) correlational relationships between academic self—concept (ASC), general self—concept (GSC), attendance, (ATT), socioeconomic status (SES), and academic achievement (AA) among grades 7 to 11 students in a band—controlled school in Northwestern Ontario; and, (b) if academic self—concept, global self—concept, attendance, and socioeconomic status were predictors of academic achievement. The population sample was 70 Native students; 20 in grade 7, 27 in grade 8, 13 in grade 9, 4 in grade 10, and 6 in grade 11. The results showed: (1) significant correlational relationships between (a) ASC and GSC and SC and ATT for the grades 7—9 students; (b) ASC and ATT for the grades 10-11 students; and, (2) academic achievement was not predicted by any of the variables. Future research concerning Native education is suggested.
