Evidence of Deeper Learning Outcomes


"The Study of Deeper Learning: Opportunities and Outcomes--funded by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation--aimed to determine whether students attending high schools with a mature and at least moderately well implemented approach to promoting deeper learning actually experienced greater deeper learning opportunities and outcomes than they would have had they not attended these schools. In this report--our third in a series of three--we focus specifically on key questions about student outcomes: Did students who attended participating network high schools perform better on tests of cognitive competency, report higher levels of interpersonal and intrapersonal competencies, or attain higher rates of high school graduation and college enrollment than they would have had they not attended the network schools?

The analyses in this report focus on students from between 10 and 13 pairs of matched deeper learning network and comparison schools in California and New York (the number of pairs included in specific analyses varied based on the availability of data). After statistically accounting for differences in student background characteristics, we found that students who attended participating network high schools that explicitly focused on deeper learning experienced superior outcomes compared to students who attended non-network comparison high schools."
