The Role of a Temperament Intervention in Kindergarten Children's Standardized Academic Achievement
Collings, Ashleigh; O'Connor, Erin; McClowry, Sandee
Journal of Education and Training Studies, v5 n2 p120-139 Feb 2017
Previous research finds that children experience a range of school readiness challenges (e.g., Chartier, Walker, & Naimark, 2010; Zill, 1999). Such challenges vary by children's gender, temperament, and participation in school-based interventions (e.g., Mullola et al., 2011; Bramlett, Scott, Rowell, 2000). However, the examination of child temperament, gender, and children's participation in school-based, temperament programming has been minimal. This study explores the role of child temperament profiles and child gender on children's standardized academic outcomes following participation in a school-based, temperament intervention. Study participants included 324 kindergarten students attending urban, low-income schools. A multivariate regression analysis explored associations among child temperament profile, gender, and academic performance. Cautious and male kindergarten intervention participants attained higher standardized mathematics and literacy scores than their non-intervention participating counterparts.
