Comparison of a Year-Round School and a Traditional School: Reading and Mathematics Achievement.
Roby, Douglas E.
ERS Spectrum, v13 n1 p7-10 Win 1995
Compares sixth-graders' math and reading achievement at year-round and traditional schools in the same (Ohio) school district. Uses a randomized, control-group, posttest-only method controlling for the effects of history maturation and pretesting. The statistical and practical results favor the alternative year-round calendar, particularly when the verbal covariate and the effect-size analysis are considered. (MLH)
