The Covid Slide in Learning

What is "Covid Slide"?

2020-2021 academic year was perhaps the most challenging year for students and teachers in our nation's recent history of education. The impact of pandemic (covid-19) was hard hitting on students across all grades from K through 12th grade that lead to huge learning loss. This learning loss is commonly referred to as "Covid Slide".

How bad is the Covid Slide?

 A recent article was published on that referred to an NWEA report on Covid Slide. The report collected data on MAP Test for math and reading for 5.5 million students in grades 3 through 8 during 2020-21 school year.  Per findings of the research, by the spring of 2021, reading scores had declined between 3 to 6 percentiles when compared to reading scores of Fall 2020. Math achievement was even more impacted. The Fall 2020 math achievements that were already down 5-10 percentile in different states and socio-economic groups further fell down to 8-12 percentile in Spring of 2021 when compared to historical data of pre-pandemic years.
