Data pre-processing

The Early Childhood Longitudinal Study, Kindergarten (ECLS-K) has been subset down both the number of observations and variables. In particular, only observations without any missing values from a set of reduced variables – given above – are included. If additional data is required, please visit the data download page found in the reference section.

Answer coding

Parents and teachers each answered a set of survey items involving a likert scale that ranged from "1 = never" to "4 = very often" regarding the subject. Within the teacher responses, they also had the option of marking "-7 = no opportunity to observe" option, which was treated as a missing observation. To align with C++, we perform a index shift backward of 1 and, thus, make the scale "0=never" to "3=very often".
