Students' micro-level academic achievement occurs within micro-system environments of family and school, which in turn are influenced by the economic and cultural macrosystem of a country. At the student level, mathematics, reading, and science achievement is related to gender and motivation (interest in reading, extrinsic motivation, effort and perseverance, self-efficacy and self concept).

influence student achievement: family education, family income, parents’ criminal activity, and family structure.

In this essay I look at four family variables that may influence student achievement: family education, family income, parents’ criminal activity, and family structure. I then consider the ways in which schools can offset the effects of these factors. In most studies, parental education has been identified as the single strongest correlate of children’s success in school, the number of years they attend school, and their success later in life. Because parental education influences children’s learning both directly and through the choice of a school, we do not know how much of the correlation can be attributed to direct impact and how much to school-related factors.

International comparisons of educational achievement tell us essentially two things: 1) different countries produce different kinds of outcomes, and 2) different countries will score at different levels when we measure achievement using the same outcomes. Such variation in the national systems of education leads inexorably to variation in the performance of students in each nation. Sorting out the meaning of the differences that appear among nations is nearly impossible when the variation in scores is the result of at least a few hundred variables known to affect performance.
