Half-Day Kindergarten versus All-Day Kindergarten and Its Effects on First-Grade Reading Achievement.
Harrison-McEachern, Rebecca
A study compared the reading achievement of first grade students who attended half-day kindergarten to that of students who attended full-day kindergarten. Subjects, 67 students in urban Newark, New Jersey, who had attended half-day and 66 students who had attended full-day kindergarten, were given the first grade Comprehensive Tests of Basic Skills (CTBS) after 8 months in the first grade. The total reading scores for the two groups were then compared. Results indicated that students who had attended full-day kindergarten scored significantly higher than students who had attended half-day kindergarten. (One table of data is included; 21 references and an appendix of data are attached.) (RS)
