A three-part study of the background and preparation in English of selected students at South Dakota State College was conducted. The purpose was to discover and analyze significant differences in the home environment of top-ranking students and bottom-ranking students in English. The home environments of 42 top-tanking and 42 bottom-ranking students of English were studied by means of home interviews to determine variables which might contribute to the student’s success or failure in college English. The 84 students attended South Dakota State College during the spring quarter, 1962, and had graduated from the 10 top-ranking and 10 bottom-ranking high schools studied in the research project reported in the thesis of Phyllis Bonner Weichenthal, Major differences Between Ten Top-Ranking and Ten Bottom-ranking South Dakota high Schools: A study of English.
