Prediction of Achievement in the First Primary Year. Study Number One.
University City School District, MO.
This report is part of a 4-year study of prekindergarten and kindergarten children designed to provide data predictive of children's school achievement. A total of 109 boys and girls were given the Complete Assessment Battery, Metropolitan Readiness Tests (MRT), and the California Short-Form Test of Mental Maturity at the end of kindergarten or in the middle of the first primary year. Test scores were compared with the same children's scores on the Stanford Achievement Test given at the end of the first primary year. Of the 24 factors used in prediction, exclusive of age and sex, the total raw score of the MRT (which can be given to groups of eight or ten children) administered at the end of kindergarten appeared to be the most practical predictor of performance as measured by the Stanford Achievement Test at the end of the first primary year. Only slight improvement in prediction was gained by using combinations of tests in the Complete Assessment Battery, with MRT subtests. (Author/NH)
