The Effects of Prescribed, Sequential Programs of Reading and Mathematics on the Readiness of Middle Class Kindergarten Children and on Their Subsequent Achievement in Reading and Mathematics.
Ricketts, Jean Napier
The effects of a prescribed, sequential program of reading and mathematics readiness activities were investigated in an experimental study of 229 middle-class kindergarten children. Eight of 16 kindergarten classes received the experimental treatment for six months; the other eight served as a control group. Readiness tests were given before and after the experimental period during the kindergarten year and again at the beginning of first grade; reading, mathematics, and IQ tests were administered at the end of first grade. Analysis of results indicated that the experimental group did not differ significantly from the control group in growth of readiness during the kindergarten year, in regression of readiness during the summer before first grade, or in achievement in reading and mathematics at the end of first grade. Age related significantly to readiness for, and achievement in, reading. (Author/AA)
