Kye Sook Chung
The purpose of this research was to examine the concurrent validity of the Nalongyee children`s achievement motivation test by studying its relationship to a children`s school readiness test. The subjects were 335 preschool children (171 urban and 164 rural) selected from 8 public and 7 private kindergartens located in two metropolitan areas (Seoul and Pusan) and 5 rural counties in Kyungsang Nam Do. Instruments included the Nalongyee Children`s Achievement Motivation Test by the author and the School Readiness "Lest by Unhai Rhee. Data were analyzed by Pearson r and Z-test. Readiness was positively related to the total score and sub-areas of achievement motivation (.10-.43). Sub-areas of the achievement motivation test were related to each of the 4 factors of the readiness test. The correlations ranged from .00-.35 with the personal-social response factor, .00-.26 with the associative vocabulary factor, .05-.31 with the number concept factor, and .03-.37 with the perception factor. Significant differences in correlations were found between urban and rural areas for self-confidence, interest in learning, interest in kindergarten and physical competence.
