Toronto Board of Education (Ontario). Research Dept.
FIVE SCHOOLS TOOK PART IN A SAMPLE STUDY TO SET SCORING PROCEDURES IN A LONGITUDINAL STUDY IN PROGRESS TO DETERMINE THE EFFECTS OF JUNIOR KINDERGARTEN ATTENDANCE ON THE CHILDREN'S LATER ACHIEVEMENT AND DEVELOPMENT. PUPIL CHARACTERISTIC DATA ARE BEING COLLECTED ON PROFILE CARDS AND A TEACHER-RATED QUESTIONNAIRE WHICH WAS DESIGNED TO PROVIDE INFORMATION ON A CHILD'S SOCIAL, EMOTIONAL, MENTAL, PHYSICAL, AND LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT. KINDERGARTEN DRAWINGS WILL ALSO BE EXAMINED TO FIND OUT THE CHILDREN'S PERCEPTIONS OF THE WORLD. HALF OF THE CHILDREN INVOLVED IN THE SAMPLE HAD HAD JUNIOR KINDERGARTEN AND HALF HAD NOT. RESULTS SHOWED THAT THE FORMER HAD HIGHER QUESTIONNAIRE RATINGS IN ALL 5 CATEGORIES, THAT CHILDREN WITH POOR ENGLISH BACKGROUNDS RATED LOWER, AND THAT CHILDREN WHO HAD REPEATED SENIOR KINDERGARTEN HAD CAUGHT UP WITH THEIR CLASSMATES BEFORE ENTERING GRADE I. THE STUDY IS BEING CONTINUED AT GRADE I LEVEL USING THE DOMINION READING READINESS AND METROPOLITAN ACHIEVEMENT TESTS. (MS)
