The study included 15 Caucasian students and 15 African American students between the ages of 8 years, 0 months to 13 years 7 months who attend a suburban school district in Ohio and were referred due to academic concerns. The sample consisted of 11 females and 19 males with an average age of 11 years, 5 months. Results found the correlation between the GIA and the MPI was r = .83, n = 30, p < .05 and the relationship between the GIA and the FCI to be r = .86, n = 30, p<.05. Results of a t-test found the scores for the GIA and FCI to be significantly different t(29)=3.57, p < .001. Correspondingly, t-test results for the GIA and MPI was t(29) = 3.07, p<.05.
