The Influence of Extended-Year Schooling on Growth of Achievement and Perceived Competence in Early Elementary School.
Frazier, Julie A.; Morrison, Frederick J.
Child Development, v69 n2 p495-517 Apr 1998
Compared academic and psychosocial skills of kindergartners attending extended-year or traditional programs. Found that at beginning of next traditional year, extended-year students outperformed traditional-year students in mathematics, reading, and general knowledge and had higher perceived cognitive competence. Mathematics and reading achievement differences were not associated with differences in educational efforts during the traditional school year or to teacher differences. (Author/KB)
