Correlation between Attendance and School Readiness of Kindergarten Students.
Whitker, Shirley
One strategy that can provide immediate results in improving African American kindergarten students' success in school is improving attendance. This study examined the effect of school attendance on African American kindergarten students' learning readiness. Thirty kindergarten students in three classrooms at one Chicago school completed the Metropolitan Readiness Test. After Pearson Product-Moment Coefficients were determined, the results suggested a correlation between classroom attendance and students' readiness. Based on the findings, recommendations include reminding administrators and staff of the correlation between attendance and student readiness, and holding parents accountable for unexcused and/or excessive absences.
