Abstract

It was established that academic performance, as an integrated characteristic of intellectual development, of 1st–8th graders of comprehensive schools with low (1.5–2.5 kg) or high (4.0–5.1 kg) birth weight is lower than of those with normal (2.6–3.9 kg) birth weight. Direct linear dependence of academic performance on birth weight ranging from 1.5 to 3.1 kg was detected.

Keywords

birth weight, academic performance, schoolchildren.
