When: Restorative Breaks

When: Restorative Breaks

Test results improve if we take regular breaks.

Taking a test after a twenty to thirty minute break produces scores that are equivalent to:

  • Spending three additional weeks at school per year
  • Having wealthier and better-educated parents

Taking the same test in the afternoon without a break produces scores that are equivalent to:

  • Spending less time in school per year
  • Having parents with lower incomes and less education
