Changing the Kindergarten Cutoff Date: Effects on California Students and Schools. Technical Appendix
Cannon, Jill S.; Lipscomb, Stephen
Public Policy Institute of California
In this appendix to our Occasional Paper, we review 14 recent rigorous studies on how entrance age affects student outcomes in the short and long term, paying particular attention to aspects that are most relevant to state-level policy decisions. We summarize findings related to elementary and secondary academic achievement, grade retention, educational attainment, adult wages, and other relevant outcomes. (Three addenda include: (1) State Kindergarten Entrance Cutoff Date, 2006-07; (2) Study Samples and Designs; and (3) Summary of Studies and Findings. Contains 10 footnotes and 3 tables.)
