The research literature suggests that frequent parental knowledge of their child's academic achievement is a necessary, but perhaps not a sufficient, condition for an improvement in achievement. Parents who are provided with frequent feedback about their child's academic achievement, along with a systematic method to manage their child's achievement, may be able to improve achievement in the absence of any systematic in-school intervention.
