Synopsis: Is school readiness among kindergartners better predicted by social and emotional skills or academic skills? This study of 121 Head Start students indicates that, although both are important, total protective factor scores from the Devereux Early Childhood Assessment explain more variance (49%) in teacher-rated school readiness than do academic skills (16%) as measured by the Developmental Indicators for the Assessment of Learning–Third Edition (DIAL-3).
