Full-Day Kindergarten Evaluation
Jointly conducted by the Delaware Department of Education and the Center for Disabilities Studies, the study examines the efficacy and benefits of full-day kindergarten programs. Beginning in the 2004-2005 school year, data has been collected and analyzed for two years. The study will continue in the 2007-2008 school year.
As part of its responsibilities, the Center works to:
- Assess the curriculum content and teaching practices used in full-day kindergarten classrooms.
- Examine the effects of full-day kindergarten on students’ general knowledge, writing, and math skills.
- Track and compare the literacy outcomes of students who attended full-day kindergarten with those who attended part-day kindergarten.
