What Is the Effect of School Entrance Age on the Reading Readiness Achievement of Kindergarten Students?
Parks, Lois
This study examined the relationship between age at school entry and reading readiness in kindergarten. Subjects included 30 kindergarten students selected randomly from a population of 56 students at a parochial school in a predominantly low socioeconomic status neighborhood in Chicago, Illinois. All students were African American and ranged in age from 5.5 years to 6.5 years. The Prereading Composite score from the Metropolitan Readiness Test Sixth Edition given in April 1996 was used as the achievement measure. Findings indicated that mean age at school entry was 64.39 months and the mean Prereading Composite raw score was 52.53. The correlation between age at school entry and reading readiness was .96.
