Stream: Curriculum Design & Development

In this study, evidence-based scientific information is provided about the impact of extramural music (EMA; number of hours/week spent in music extramurally), and extramural sport activities (ESA; number of hours/week spent in sports extramurally) on 1st to 5th graders’ scholastic performance in Math and Science. This was done by parametrically estimating the impact of EMA and ESA:  on six assessment periods, and  on performance trajectories over 36 weeks (1 assessment period = 6 weeks). On a per assessment period analysis, multiple linear regression analysis was employed; for the 36-week trend analysis, a multilevel level model of change was performed. On a per assessment period analysis, the impact of mothers’ education (with vs. without graduate degree), and number of hours spent in music had the greatest impact on math and science grades. In terms of performance trajectories, mothers’ education showed the most impact on initial performance.
