Academically Speaking, the 'COVID Slide' Could Be a Lot Worse Than You Think

Apr 17, 2020

Many kids will lose the equivalent of a WHOLE GRADE level worth of math skills because of the “COVID-Slide.” While we see a slide every Summer, research by NWEA says the impact to student learning is expected to be more devastating for kids!

If students return to school campuses in the fall without continuity of instruction during the closures, they could retain only 70 percent of their reading progress, compared to a normal year. 


And Math looks worse with students projected to lose anywhere from half of their academic growth from the last year!
