|Abstract: ||In this study, nn attempt was made to fin0 the interrelations
of ELP and academic achi.evement of seventh grnde
students. In order to do this, 132 seventh grade students
were randomly selected from Patriots' Junior High School.
A test was prepared and given to these students by the
writer to measure their ELP while their academic achievement
test results in maths, science and geography were
gathered from the school record.
The Pearson Product-Moment Correlation Coefficient
formula used to find the correlation between English-
Geography, English-maths:} English-Science. The results
of the computation reveled that:
the correlation between English-Geography was 0.55.
- the correlation between English-Maths was 0.56.Policy. Only 7. 69 of those who scored 50% in the ELPT
failed in all the three subjects.
On the bases of the results of' the study and
other relevant points mentioned in this paper,
recommendations have been given. One such is to use
50% in the ELPT 3S 3 criterion for promotion from
grade 6 to Grade 7 if junior high school students
are to succeed in their academic studies.
the correlation between English-Science was 0.64.
The results in general showed that students who scored
high in the ELPT have also scored high in the other
aca1emic subjects and vice versa.
It was also found out that of those who scored 50%
an1 above in the ELPT, 61.54% passed in English and maths,84.62%
in science and 92.3% in geography by scoring 50 and
