Summer Recess: Does it Make a Difference on Title I Student Achievement?
Womble, Melodie L.
A random sample of fourth and eighth grade Title I students who either did or did not attend summer school was tested to determine what effect the Title I summer school program had on student achievement and summer loss in reading and mathematics. Academic achievement was assessed by the Stanford Achievement Tests. The results indicated summer school did not make a difference in Title I student performance for these grade levels. Most differences between the two groups were nonexistent by the end of September. Students not attending summer school usually gained more or lost less than students attending summer school. The necessity of a summer Title I academic program is questionable. (Author/JP)
