Capstone Project (Open Access)
Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)
The way school is structured plays a major role in the academic achievement of middle school students. Scheduling systems like block scheduling and traditional period scheduling have played major roles on how students throughout the world are making the transition from elementary school to high school. While the academic achievement of middle school students is based on a collection of things, this senior capstone research project will explore how block scheduling vs traditional period scheduling affect the academic achievement of middle school students. The purpose of this project is to see the answer to the best scheduling system for middle schools based on the perceptions of students, teachers, and administrators along with some recommendations as on how to best accommodate middle school students to maximize their learning.
