Abstract

One of the most important factors influence school achievement of first grade elementary school’s student was school readiness. Indonesian government regulation regarding that minimum age for admission to elementary school is 7 years old to gain student’s school readiness. School readiness was formed by several internal and external factors. Those factors will be more necessary wheter the elementary school is an inclusion school. Previous researchs had found there were some problems occured on inclusion school. The problems were about teacher’s classroom management skill and bullying intension amoung students. This study aimed to investigate correlation between student’s intelligence, age at entry school, and parental socio-economic level with student’s school readiness. Participants of this correlational study were first grade students of inclusion elementary school (N=36). Data were collected using Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children, Nijmegsee Schoolbekwaamheids Test (NST), and school demographical’s data (for parental socio-economic and student’s age variables). Regression analysis showed there were positive correlation between fullscale IQ score and NST score (rxy = 0.583, p<0.05). Pearson product moment’s correlation showed positive correlation between performance IQ and school readiness (rxy = 0.457, p < 0.05). There were no correlation between verbal IQ score, student’s age, and parental socio-economic level with school readiness.
