Description

This research study examines the correlation between parent involvement and student achievement in the areas of Math and English Language Arts as a means of answering the research question: Does the amount of parent involvement have an effect on their child’s math and ELA scores? Data collection methods will include parent and student surveys and student test score data. Approximately 125 fifth grade students and their parents will be participants in the study. The survey responses of parents and students identified in two groups, “above average and below average students’, will be analyzed in relation to their fourth grade New York State Math and ELA test scores. Above average students are classified as those with an A in both math and ELA. Below average students are classified as those with a grade of C or lower in math and ELA. I anticipate that data analysis of survey responses and standardized tests scores will reveal a correlation between parent involvement in their child’s academics, and the achievement of these students in math and ELA. These results hold the potential to confirm that the more parent involvement there is, the more successful students there are.
