Title:  The Kindergarten Year
Description: This report attempts to answer two basic sets of questions about children's knowledge and skill acquisition during the kindergarten year. What gains are children making from the fall of the kindergarten year to the spring of the kindergarten year in their overall reading and mathematics knowledge and skills? What gains are children making in specific knowledge and skills (e.g., recognizing letters, recognizing numbers)? The report also answers the question, do children's gains differ by child, family and kindergarten program characteristics?
