How can districts measure learning loss recovery costs?
Pandemic-induced learning loss varies for numerous reasons, including how long a school operated in remote mode as well as student or school characteristics. ‘The Calculator” can help districts answer this important question, examine current recovery investments and prioritize spending going forward to get student back on track.
These figures represent predicted averages for each district’s mix of students, with higher losses in some schools and for some students, and lower in others based on learning time lost through the fall of 2021. They are estimates, and we encourage district leaders to quantify the actual student learning trends in their district, set against how much it would cost to address any student learning gaps.
