Spillman, Carolyn V.; And Others
Florida Educational Research and Development Council Research Bulletin, v14 n1 Sum 1980
This research bulletin provides criteria and procedures for determining the readiness of children to enter kindergarten early. The first section of the bulletin reviews the results of a literature search conducted to delineate areas of development from which admissions criteria should be defined. The review of the literature disclosed the following areas for developing early admission criteria: chronological age; social-emotional, physical and conceptual development; and language skills. The second section delineates a readiness evaluation procedure. Related materials, such as sample letters to parents and guidelines for parent teacher conferences, are appended. (Author/RH)
