Study of Early Education in Texas; The Relationship of Pre-K Attendance to 3rd Grade Test Results

Date: March 2012
Publication Type: Final Report. 51pp.

The major purpose of the project is to determine whether attending school-based PreKindergarten predicted children’s performance on the third-grade TAKS scores in reading and math. The results show small, but significant differences with eligible children who attended Pre-K performing better on both reading and math third-grade standardized tests. The performance differential associated with Pre-K is greatest for the most disadvantaged children – those from very poor families and those who qualified by virtue of both family income and limited English proficiency.
