The purpose of this study was to determine if the perception of an at-risk student differed when comparing the perspectives of M.Ed. and M.A.T. students. The measurement tool was a pen and paper questionnaire. This descriptive study involved comparing the respondent’s answers concerning at-risk children from their developmental years through youth. The questionnaire resulted in perceptions being mostly the same aside from some differences concerning criterion in identifying at-risk children and the impact of at-risk identification. Research in the area of at-risk students should continue given that defeat and discouragement still exists in schools.
