In the Running for Successful Outcomes: Contemplating "Threshholds" for School Readiness

Publication Date

This research brief summarizes findings related to 'thresholds' of school readiness from a larger ASPE study on this topic called 'In the Running for Successful Outcomes.' The In the Running project's findings contribute to an emerging picture of school readiness skills and developmental trajectories. While no children appeared to be primed for accelerated growth by being above a particular threshold of skill level at school entry, the findings were informative about relationships between school readiness skills and subsequent academic and behavior skills during the school years.
