Abstract
In this study, we report results of a study examining the relationship between home
environment factors and reading achievement in Zimbabwe. The study utilised data
collected by the Southern and Eastern Africa Consortium for Monitoring Educational
Quality (SACMEQ). The data were submitted to linear regression analysis through
structural equation modelling using AMOS 4.0. In our results, we showed that a proxy
for SES was the strongest predictor of reading achievement.
