This study examined the impact of family involvement on academic achievement of Black students. The Family Involvement and Academic Success questionnaire was divided into three sections that included the Family Involvement Scale, demographic information, and student grade point average. Participants included 93 Black students from a four-year public university in middle Tennessee. The research found there was a difference in family involvement between Black first- and second-generation students and a relationship to specific behaviors that family participated in, such as freshmen orientation.
