Compensatory Prekindergarteners' I.Q. Gain Correlated with Third Grade Reading Achievement.
Archer, Philip D.; Sewall, Michael B.
The purpose of this study was to investigate the correlation between gain on the Stanford-Binet Intelligence Test (S-B) in compensatory prekindergarten programs, and scores on the New York State Pupil Evaluation Program (PEP), Reading Section, over three years later. Four hundred and five subjects showed a correlation of 0.42 for the pre-post S-B gain correlated with PEP, when corrected for regression, versus 0.13 for uncorrected S-B gain. Additional correlations were computed for restricted IQ ranges. This study lends support to compensatory education programs attempting to raise IQ's.
