New school readiness test results are down for children who completed in Florida's pre-kindergarten program in the last academic year compared to 2006-07.

Fifty-four percent of participants were deemed school-ready last year, program officials said Thursday. That's down from 58 percent the year before. But it's still a better rate than for children who do not finish or participate in the voluntary program.

Children last year, though, showed a slight improvement on a letter-naming test with 74 percent rated above average compared to 72 percent the previous year.

Results of a third test on alphabet sound recognition remained unchanged with 54 percent above average.
