Birthdate and Performance: The Relative Age Effect.
Barnsley, Roger H.
The purpose of this paper is to consider the concept of "relative age" and to review recent research findings that have demonstrated that relative age is related to a variety of academic and athletic performance measures. The paper is divided into six parts: (1) the relative age concept; (2) relative age and achievement in sports; (3) relative age and achievement in school; (4) relative age or readiness; (5) relative age, hockey, and education; and (6) "neutralizing" the relative age effect in schools. Appended are 14 references. (SI)
