The Effects of Preschool Experiences on Academic Achievement of First Graders.
Kohart, Rebecca; Nickell, Kathryn
Although current research has not shown prevailing effects of the preschool experience on overall achievement scores, it does indicate a positive effect on language related skills, particularly for males. This study examined the relationship between language related achievement test scores between those first graders with preschool experience and those without. Subjects from Antwerp Elementary in Antwerp, Ohio, a small rural community, were 19 first-graders who had attended preschool and 39 who had not. Scores from the Primary I level of the Metropolitan Achievement Test, sixth edition, were compared between the two groups. Analyses revealed that there was no significant difference among the two groups of children. The results suggest that language achievement test scores are not indicative of preschool effectiveness.
