School administrators -- Attitudes; Teacher-administrator relationships; Student-administrator relationships;
This review proposes to discover how educators defined reading readiness and what they recommended relative to the cognitive skills assessment of reading readiness in 1950 and 1980. 2 A second purpose is to discover if standardized assessment devices reflect the definitions and recommendations. There is an ever increasing need to know what cognitive skills a child should be equipped with before learning to read. Today's society has increased pressure for academic achievement of elementary children. This pressure has resulted in early introduction of formal reading instruction in first grade and much attention to the reading readiness program in kindergarten (Hoffman & Fillmer, 1979).
