Abstract

The hypotheses tested in this study are concerned with the efficacy of different methods of trying to aid underachievers. Specifically they are: 1. There is no difference in academic achievement as reflected in grade-point-average between students who received group counseling, special study instruction and no special treatment. 2. There is no difference in study skills as reflected by the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (Work Study Skills subtest) between students who received group counseling, special study instruction, and no special treatment. 3. There is no difference in social adjustment as measured by the Pupil Adjustment Rating Scale between students who received group counseling, special study instruction, and no special treatment.
