1. Whitehead, Shawna L. Preschool Impact on Emergent Literacy in Kindergarten Students: A Case Study.

Degree: Specialist in Education, School Psychology, 2018, Miami University

The current study explored the role of preschool attendance in early literacy attainment (as measured by scores on the STAR Early Literacy assessment) for students in kindergarten. It also examined the difference between students of low-income backgrounds who did, and did not, attend preschool. This research was conducted in order to answer a specific question that school administrators from a local school district had: Does preschool make a significant difference in students' early literacy attainment? Results indicated that students who attended preschool scored significantly higher than students who did not attend preschool. In addition, results from the present study demonstrated that students of low SES who went to preschool did not score significantly higher than students of low SES who did not go to preschool. This only occurred during the winter, though, as students of low SES who went to preschool did score significantly higher on their spring SEL scores than students of low SES who did not go to preschool. Based on the findings of this study, a relationship between preschool attendance and early literacy development was confirmed. Advisors/Committee Members: Witte, Raymond (Committee Co-Chair), Woodin, Michael (Committee Co-Chair).
