The goal of this study was to determine if there exists a more streamlined kindergarten readiness battery that could replace an existing longer battery deemed too lengthy for preschoolers. The streamlined battery would then be proposed for adoption at schools with which the researcher is associated
This study examined the kindergarten readiness battery currently in use at a private school in California. Primary focus was placed on the correlation between readiness variables and year-end kindergarten reading outcomes with math, listening and total battery outcomes as a secondary focus. The readiness battery consisted of five demographic variables and 20 readiness predictor variables. Bivariate correlations were run using all baseline demographic and readiness variables as well as between the readiness variables and the seven Stanford Achievement Test 9 (SAT 9) outcome measures. Multiple linear regression analyses were then performed to ascertain the statistically significant demographic and predictor readiness variables (p <0.05). The regressions were run using four models based on variables found in the literature to have the most robust, moderately robust and lowest predictive values. Demographic and predictor readiness variables demonstrating statistical significance at least 25% of the time in the regression analyses were included in the proposed model. The proposed streamlined model reduced the predictor readiness variables from 20 to 14 thereby effecting a 33% reduction in length of test administration
