|The effect of space and furnishings, as measured by the Early Childhood Environment Rating Scale - Revised (ECERS-R), on the School Readiness Composite (SRC) of the Bracken Basic Concept Scale - Revised (BBCS-R) was investigated. The data analyzed was collected as part of the West Virginia Educare Initiative and included the SRC from 65 preshcool students, ranging in age from 2 years, 6 months to 5 years, 0 months. The first subtest score on the ECERS-R, space and furnishings, was also calculated for each child's classroom. The Spearman rank correlation coefficient between the SRC on the BBCS-R and the space and furnishings score on the ECERS-R was .26 at the .05 level of significance. Due to the low level of the correlation coefficient and lack of research in this area, duplicate studies are needed.
