Summer Learning Loss

The Effects of Summer Vacation on Achievement Test Scores: A Narrative and Meta-Analytic Review

Harris Cooper, Barbara Nye, Kelly Charlton, James Lindsay, Scott Greathouse

Fall 1996

National Association for Year-Round Education


Study Findings

  • At Best: Students show little or no academic growth over summer. At worst: Students lose one to three months of learning

  • Summer Loss: Greater in Math than Reading

  • Summer Loss: Greatest in Math computation and spelling

  • Summer vacation increases disparities between advantaged and disadvantaged students reading scores

  • The detrimental effect of summer vacation increases as grade level increases

  • No particular differences because of gender or race

Harris Cooper et al

Review of Educational Research

Fall, 1996


Study Conclusions

Options for policymakers:

  • We can accept the detrimental effects of summer vacation

  • We can increase the summer school opportunities and direct these efforts in the most beneficial manner

  • We can examine alternative school calendars

Harris Cooper, Jeffrey Valentine, Kelly Charlton and April Melson

“Modified calendars were associated with higher achievement for economically disadvantaged students”

Harris Cooper et al

Review of Educational Research

“The convention of requiring students to attend (school) for 9 or 10 months and then take a long vacation is counterproductive to long-term learning.”

Getting Smarter, Becoming Fairer calendar programs were positive about their experiences.”

“The summer learning loss is greatest among low-income children, who often lack the enriching out-of-school opportunities available to their more affluent peers.”

National Association for Year-Round Education


Getting Smarter, Becoming Fairer calendar programs were positive about their experiences.”

“If students in continually low-performing school districts are to have a chance at catching up and meeting standards, they will need much more time engaged in learning activities.”

“Today’s publicly supported learning time was designed to respond to the needs of students and their families – the students and families of the 19th century.”

“Unyielding and relentless, the time available in a uniform six-hour day and a 180-day year is the unacknowledged design flaw in American Education.”

“The idea, still having two months off, is ridiculous in this country. If you’re going to compete with India and China, they’re going to school six days a week and they don’t take the summer off.”

Options for Overcrowding

  • Bond Issues

  • Double Sessions

  • Extended Day

  • Redrawing boundaries

  • Portables

  • Multi-Track YRE

Overcrowding

School Capacity of 600

With Multi-Track Year-Round Education (MTYRE)

Four tracks of 200 students

Three Tracks in Session , One Out of Session

Expands Capacity to 800 Students

Only 600 Students in School at any Given Time

Expands School Capacity by 33%

National Association for Year-Round Education


Multi-Track calendar programs were positive about their experiences.”

Four Tracks (45-15, 60-20)

School Capacity 900

Need to Enroll 1,200

  • Students divided into four tracks – 300 students per track

  • Three tracks always in session – 900 students (capacity)

  • One track always on vacation – 300 students (growth)

Capacity Equation

300(Vacation)

900 (Capacity) = 33% capacity gain

National Association for Year-Round Education
