Predicting Academic Achievement in Fourth Grade from Kindergarten Cognitive, Behavioural and Motor Skills

    Using data from the Quebec Longitudinal Study of Child Development (QLSCD, see the box entitled QLSCD 1998-2010 in brief), this study
    replicated and extended the Duncan et al. model by investigating the impact of children’s cognitive, behavioural and motor skills in kindergarten
    on their overall success level in fourth grade, including their achievement in mathematics, reading, writing, and science. We also examined how
    school readiness in kindergarten contributes to students’ school and classroom engagement in the fourth grade.
