Nature-Nurture in the Classroom: Entrance Age, School Readiness, and Learning in Children.
Morrison, Frederick J.; And Others
Developmental Psychology, v33 n2 p254-62 Mar 1997
Assessed the reading and mathematics abilities of kindergartners and first graders in the fall and spring of the school year. Found that younger first graders made as much progress over the year as older first graders and more than older kindergartners. Findings demonstrated that entrance age was not a good predictor of learning or academic risk. (BC)
