The results indicated that students from the two class placements were similar in grade level but different in gender and age. Students in special education classes were more likely to be older and male than were students in the general education classes. The second question asked whether student participants were significantly different on any of the five characteristics: learning disabilities, underachievement, self-regulation, self-determination, or school adjustment. The results indicated that students enrolled in special education classes were significantly more likely to have learning disability and underachievement characteristics and to have lower self-regulation, self-determination, and school adjustment scores.

The fourth question asked whether gender, age, or any of the five assessed characteristics were significant predictors of student placements in special and general education classes. The results indicated that gender, self-regulation, and self-determination were significant predictors of class placement but that age, learning disability characteristics, underachievement characteristics, and school adjustment were not..
