School Readiness Testing: A Bibliography. TM Report 54.
Gislason, Barbara Joan
The determination of when a child is ready to enter kindergarten or first grade varies from school district to school district. Currently, many school systems are reevaluating their criteria for school entry. In some school systems, chronological age appears to be the sole criterion; in others, social and learning readiness are also primary considerations. Frequently, educators turn to various testing procedures in order to make an objective determination of readiness. The 113 entries contained in this bibliography, chosen after careful review of items retrieved from a computer search of five large data bases (ERIC, National Technical Information Service (NTIS), Psychological Abstracts, Exceptional Children, and Dissertation Abstracts), should facilitate this process.
