Using data from the National Education Longitudinal Study of 1988 (NELS:88), the authors investigate whether four groups of Asian Americans (Chinese, Korean, Filipino, and South East Asian) show comparable scores on variables that past studies have found to be related to academic achievement and whether these variables similarly predict academic achievement for all four groups. Results show significant group differences on the scores of all variables (except parents setting rules) and in the pattern of associations of study variables with academic achievement of eighth graders. Implications for school psychologists and suggestions for future research are discussed.
