Abstract

The Vygotskyan perspective to school achievement suggests that parents play a role in mediating the relationship between students’ability and their achievement. Structural equation modeling path models involving data from one school showed that parental affective factors mediated the effects of students’IQ score in predicting achievement in English, Chinese and mathematics.
