Abstract or Summary
  • According to recent research, children’s learning related skills, such as cooperation, self-regulation, responsibility, and independence, are closely related to their academic outcomes (McClelland, Acock, Morrison 2006). While self regulation during preschool and it’s related skills are predictors of later academic achievement, it might be beneficial to determine a simple screening tool that would identify children who might need to be assessed more in-depth to determine if they would benefit from interventions. Specifically, cooperation with peers is an easily observable behavior, and a predictor of achievement (Ladd, Birtch, and Buhs, 1999), which can be measured with the Observed Child Engagement Scale (Rimm-Kaufman, Curby, Grimm, Nathanson, and Brock, 2009). Scores for preschoolers’ peer cooperation in on the OCES have been found to be related to scores on a self-regulation measure, the Head Toes Knees Shoulders (HTKS) task. Additionally, performance on the HTKS task can be predictive of later academic performance (Ponitz, McClelland, Matthews, and Morrison, 2009). Given the close nature of these relationships, it might be beneficial to further explore the connections between cooperation and achievement. This study attempts to determine those connections by exploring the relationship between observed instances of cooperation with peers as scored on the OCES and academic achievement scores on the Woodcock-Johnson Psychoeducational Battery III Tests of Achievement Applied Problems and Letter-Word Identification subscales (Woodcock and Mather, 2000). The study investigates the following question: (1) What is the relationship between instances of observed cooperation with peers on the OCES and scores Woodcock-Johnson III achievement tasks?
