Transitional kindergarten in California: The impact of transitional kindergarten on English learner students

This brief, the fifth in a series highlighting findings from the Study of California's Transitional Kindergarten Program, summarizes what we have learned about the impact of TK on EL students' school readiness skills, including mathematics skills, language and literacy skills, and English proficiency. The findings are based on analyses of two sources of data: 1) direct assessments of a sample of EL students in 20 school districts across California in the fall of 2014 and 2015 (2,647 students), and 2) statewide English proficiency data on all EL students who took the California English Language Development Test (CELDT) in school years 2013-14 and 2014-15 (54,854 students).
