What are social factors? I have to answer the question what are social factors that can influence the results of a test? but I am not sure what a social factor is. Please help me! I appreciate it!

    Social factors are anything and everything in a person's environment that influence him/her. These include family, income, cultural customs, neighborhood, religion, and primary language.

    If you're asking about academic tests, all of the above can influence the results. A child with little contact with the world outside his family, for instance, will likely have a limited vocabulary. (Years ago I knew of kindergartners in inner-city Chicago who had never seen Lake Michigan -- a short streetcar ride away from their homes.)

    If a family doesn't value education, the chances are that the child won't see any reason to try to succeed academically.
