Factors Impacting School Performance
Research has consistently shown that the relationship between intelligence and school performance explains only 25 percent of the variance. Hence, success in school must be related to other factors as well.

- What is your informed opinion on this relatively low variance? Is this surprising for you? Why or why not?
- Which factors, other than intelligence, may impact school performance?
- What role could counselors play in fostering these additional factors in order to enhance school performance?
