How kindergarten readiness predicts performance
from District Administration Magazine
A readiness test given early in the kindergarten year can predict a student's performance at the end of first grade, researchers at the University of Missouri have found. Some 350 kindergartners in six elementary schools were screened, and then retested in math and reading 18 months later. The researchers also had teachers rate the students' social and emotional skills. Kindergartners who rated poorly in academic and behavior readiness were far more likely to display disruptive behavior and have low reading scores at the end of first grade.
