It has been found that it i possible to use the EPQ adult and junior forms, and other simple personality and behavioural descriptions, to investigate pupil teacher personality interactions and pupil progress in remedial reading groups. A number of pupil and teacher personality variables were found, which either alone or by interacting with others, correlated with the progress made by pupils. Some of the correlations were positive and others negative. A number of the interactions between personality and progress variables were also related to the sex of the pupil. The findings of the research are such that a number of suggestions for further research have been generated, together with suggestions for implementation in the education service.
