In a review of literature regarding summer learning loss, University of Southern California Professors Quinn and Polikoff found the following: 
     (1) on average, students’ achievement scores declined over summer     
           vacation by one month’s worth of school-year learning, 
     (2) declines were sharper for math than for reading, and 
     (3) the extent of loss was larger at higher grade levels.
