This study investigated the relationship between math test scores and social economic status (SES). The model for this study was separated into three parts: student role performance (SRP), school, and family model segments. SES was divided into three categories: low, mid, and high SES. This study used the data from the Educational Longitudinal Study of 2002 (ELS). It was found that students with a higher SES have higher math test scores. It was also found that for large families of low and mid SES, students scored lower on their math test scores. Further study is needed to determine which aspects of SES have the greatest effect on math test scores.
