Abstract (summary)

This study investigated the effects of an after-school program on achievement in mathematics and English Language Arts of 7th grade participants. It compared the achievement of participants and non-participants to determine if a significant difference exists between the two groups. Specifically, the study sought answers to the following research questions: (1) Is there a significant difference in the rate at which students meet standard in English and mathematics after participation in the program, and to what extent can the difference, if any, be attributed to the program? (2) Is there a significant difference in the performance level of students in English and mathematics after participation in the program, and to what extent can the difference, if any be attributed to the program? (3) To what extent are program effects moderated by participants' level of attendance? (4) To what extent are program effects dependent upon pre-program academic ability as measured by the MAT?

The study sample consisted of 238 seventh grade students enrolled in one rural school district in Dillon County, South Carolina.
