Data released Thursday by NWEA, a nonprofit assessment provider, predicts that because of school closures, some students could be as much as a year behind in math when they start school in the fall, while others would experience a slide more typical of what occurs over the summer.

In California, the new data is also part of Education Trust-West’s larger “Education Equity in Crisis” project, which includes recommendations for policymakers and school leaders, such as making distance learning plans publicly available in multiple languages, adopting regulations that state how students’ at-home learning will be measured and planning for summer learning, particularly for “the most vulnerable students.”
