The aim of this study was to construct a School-readiness Questionnaire. We examined the psychometric characteristics of the Questionnaire for school readiness. We investigated an intentional sample of 89 children who attend kindergarten in Zagreb. Based
on the factor analysis, we have reduced the number of items from 50 to 31 items. The results indicate generally low correlation scales of the questionnaire with the Test of readiness for school (TSŠ). Reliability is satisfactory and acceptable, but the discriminative value is low, hence can be said that the items of the questionnaire were too easy for this sample of subjects. Comparing the results achieved by girls and boys, it is showed that children of different genders do not differ significantly on the scales of Socio-emotional development and Congitive development, while girls have significantly better results than boys in the scales of Physical development and motor skills and Attention and curiosity. We have interpreted these findings with a gender bias of this scale. Results at a scale Physical development and motor skills and two scales of cognitive development do not differ significantly, in relation to the educational status of mother and father. At the scale Socio-emotional development, children of fathers with lower and medium educational status, achieved significantly better results compared to children of fathers of higher educational status.
However, the values of correlations show that the connection between parents and their educational status with all the areas of child development estimated with questionnaire is practically zero.
