Academically speaking, the 'COVID slide' could be a lot worse than you think
from Education Week
Education leaders are already bracing for a worse "summer slide" this year for students whose schools were shut down to curb the spread of coronavirus. But new research suggests the so-called coronavirus or "COVID slide" is going to be significantly worse. In one study out today, Beth Tarasawa and Megan Kuhfeld, reasearchers for NWEA, the Northwest Evaluation Association, analyzed student achievement and growth data from more than 5 million students in grades 3-8 who participated in NWEA's widely used MAP-Growth test in 2017-2018.
