Hains, Ann Higgins; And Others
The purpose of this study was to obtain information on a variety of school skills that preschool and kindergarten teachers expect children to display in regular kindergarten classrooms. The Skill Expectation Survey for Kindergarten Readiness was administered to 21 preschool teachers and 28 kindergarten teachers from two school districts in Kansas. The results of the survey indicated that preschool teachers had higher expectations than kindergarten teachers for kindergarten entry skills. Preschool teachers' expectations approximated kindergarten teachers' expectations of children's performance at kindergarten exit. (Author/PCB)
