Document Number: 6585Achievement Gaps and Correlates of Early Mathematics Achievement: Evidence from the ECLS K–First Grade Sample - In light of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, this 2005 study estimates mathematics achievement gaps in different subgroups of kindergartners and first graders, and identifies child and school-level correlates and moderators of early mathematics achievement. This is the latest volume of Education Policy Analysis Archives published by the University of South Florida’s College of Education. The study found significant mathematics achievement gaps in Hispanics, African Americans and high-poverty students at the end of kindergarten. At the end of grade 1, mathematics gaps were significant in African-American, high-poverty, and female subgroups, but not in Hispanics.
