Research indicates that students backslide in the summer when they are out of school, or at least slow down, depending on the study. For many students, the current COVID-19 situation promises a much longer “summer,” with more than the usual amount of forgetting.
An analysis by the Collaborative for Student Growth suggests a number of impacts of schools being closed.
The analysis was based on data from 3rd through 8th grades who have taken the MAP (NWEA) growth assessments, looking at the growth trajectory by grade over the full year versus a school year ending March 15.
