Conclusions Reached

The results of this study are consistent with the findings in the original study and

lend credence to the ideas that intact family structure and certain types of parental

involvement have positive effects on academic achievement. Moreover, the consistency

in scores may indicate that living with both biological parents — even in cases where

divorce is the eventual outcome — is associated with higher test scores in comparison to

situations where the parents are never married. Regarding specific elements of parental

involvement, parents checking-up on their students’ academic activities is associated with

statistically significant, negative effects. On the other hand, parents who discuss school

classes, activities, and things studied, and parents who attend school related events and

activities are associated with statistically significant, positive effects on academic

achievement. The largest positive effect on academic achievement is associated with

socioeconomic status (SES).
