The general problem of this study was that of identification of variables related to scholastic achievement and underachievement on the part of those who are academically able. The specific purpose of this research was to gather and analyze pertinent data on the problem of underachievement in order that working principles or practical recommendations might be formulated in such a manner that they would be of aid to counselors, educators, psychologists, and kindred workers in meeting more effectively the needs of the academically gifted and their families.
