We've all heard of the notion of summer learning loss, but what is it exactly? It is defined as "the loss of academic skills and knowledge over the course of summer holidays. The loss in learning varies across grade level, subject matter, and family income. A common finding across numerous studies is that, on average, students score lower on standardized tests at the end of the summer than they do at the beginning of summer (on the same test)." Interestingly, students tend to fall farther behind in reading and math than in other subjects.
