The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between parent involvement and students’ reading comprehension test scores. A review of the literature suggests there is a correlation between parent involvement in school activities and students’ reading comprehension test scores. The researcher examined the correlation between parent involvement, as measured by the parent sign-in log for volunteers, and reading comprehension, as measured by the RDSS scores on the Maryland School Assessment (MSA) test. A correlation analysis was then conducted on the data. Visual inspection of the scatterplot (Figure 1) supports the statistical finding. A non-significant, positive relationship was found, r = 0.427, p > .05.
