KOUADIO Kouamé Armel and AGOSSOU Kouakou Mathias
This study is part of an exploratory framework. Its objective is to determine the typology of pupils and the variations in their academic performance in French in sixth grade. A sample of 320 students was determined. The data collected by questionnaire as well as the exploitation of information from the documentary research were subjected to statistical processing using Excel software. The results reveal that there are three types of pupils, namely "type 7 (girl at an abnormal age and having never taken a class)", "type 5 (girl at a normal age and having never taken a class)” and “type 1: (boy of normal age and having never returned to class)” which positively influence the academic performance of sixth-grade pupils in French than the other types. These results teach us that the control variables of age, gender and educational background act as modulating variables of academic performance. To do this, educational policies, material and human resources in terms of special education must focus on the characteristics associated with the students themselves and their environment outside of school.
