Abstract

The Optimal Achievement Model (OAM) (Phillipson, 2008) is based on a theoretical perspective that posits that measures of intellectual ability and tests of achievement reflect the same underlying psychological trait. An application of the OAM with Primary Three and Five students showed agreement with school estimates of underachievement.
