Over the past several decades, research has indicated that when parents are involved in their child's academic endeavors, their children are more likely to succeed in school. However, these findings are not congruent with the perceptions of every parent. For example, several parents reported that as their children become older, their level of involvement should decrease, while other parents felt as if their non-involvement will not have an effect either way on their child's academic performance. The focus of this study was to investigate the ways college students perceived their parents' involvement. Particularly, the overall objective of the study was to measure differences between groups based on the participants' gender, grade point average, age, classification level, their parents' income level and educational attainment. For this study, a survey design was employed to collect data. Two-hundred two (n=202) community college students participated in two empirical studies. The Parental Involvement Assessment (PIA), formulated by the researcher specifically for this study, was used to gather the data. In the preliminary study, Cronbach's Alpha on the instrument was found to be 0.819. Several ANOVAs were performed in order to determine the differences between groups on a number of measures. The results of this research indicated that parental involvement contributes to community college student success, regardless of gender. In addition, parents with higher income levels were more likely to be involved. Additionally, students who were not aware of their GPA indicated that they would know their GPA if their parents were involved. Last, amid other results, findings indicated that students with higher GPAs were more likely to be rewarded for grades, were more likely to be encouraged by their parents, and were more satisfied with the level of parental involvement. Limitations and directions for future research are discussed.

The author studied the relationship between parental involvement and academic achievement in language arts and math and the extent to which parental involvement helps predict language arts and math achievement among elementary school students. In a quantitative, non-experimental study using a descriptive, correlational research design with multiple linear regression analysis, she found a significant relationship between achievement in language arts and mathematics and parental efficacy. The study population was comprised of parents of 4th-, 5th-, and 6th-grade students in 3 elementary schools in a working-class urban New Jersey school district diverse in ethnicity and language and high in poverty. She found significant relationships between parenting skills and parental efficacy and student achievement in language arts and mathematics. As parenting skills and parental efficacy increased, the level of student achievement in both subject areas also increased. Social networking was also found to correlate with higher student achievement.

Literature findings support the conclusion that parent involvement is an important factor in student achievement and while parent involvement is associated with increased student success, parent education and SES level and ethnicity/race is less associated with this student success. These factors may serve as moderating variables related to parent involvement. The purpose of the study was to determine why some parents do not get involved in their children's education. Specifically, findings demonstrated whether family structure, race/ethnicity, education level, gender, or perceptions of involvement are related to levels of parent involvement. Quantitative and qualitative questionnaires were used to survey parents about their level of involvement in their child's education. Findings were that: parent race/ethnicity, parent education level, parent SES, and parent perceptions of involvement, were all significantly related to parental involvement; and perceptions of involvement, SES, parent education, and relationship with student (biological mother or father) significantly predict parental involvement.
