WWC Quick Review of the Report "Outcomes Linked to High-Quality Afterschool Programs: Longitudinal Findings from the Study of Promising Afterschool Programs"
What Works Clearinghouse
This study examines whether high-quality after-school programs operating in high-poverty communities improve the academic, social, and behavioral outcomes of participating students. The study compared students who regularly participated in high-quality after-school programs to students who regularly spent time with no adult supervision after school. The authors do not provide evidence that their research groups were initially equivalent. Because participation in after-school programs is not random, it is possible that there were initial differences between the two groups that could have influenced their later outcomes.
