What Works in Out-of-School Time and How Do We Know?
Metropolitan Universities, v18 n4 p122-138 2007
The burgeoning field of Out-of-School Time provides academic and social services to K-12 students during the time that they are not in school. Hundreds of service providers offer a range of programs that target various student populations. Many tools exist to measure program performance, but no uniform evaluation methods exist to inform funders and community partners about the performance of local programs. The field would benefit from more uniform evaluation efforts, greater articulation between programs, and increased partnerships between service providers and other institutions.
