Reading--Ability testing; Reading--Evaluation; Reading--Sex differences


Results of investigations might prove significant when evaluating policy pertaining to kindergarten entrance age as it applies to reading achievement. Does chronological age affect reading progress? Would reading achievement improve if children entered kindergarten at a later date? Should boys enter school at the same age as girls? In view of recent concern over the decline of reading test scores, the answers to these questions have gained added importance.
