|Title:||WWC Review of the Report "Findings from a Randomized Experiment of Playworks: Selected Results from Cohort 1"|
|Description:||The 2012 study, Findings from a Randomized Experiment of Playworks: Selected Results from Cohort 1, examined whether Playworks, a program that utilizes full-time coaches to provide structured play opportunities during recess and class time, reduces the number of disciplinary referrals in 25 low-income elementary schools in five U.S. cities during the 2010–11 school year. The Playworks program includes three main components: structured recess activities, class game time, and the junior coach program. This study is a well-implemented randomized controlled trial with low attrition at the school level, and the research described in the report meets WWC evidence standards without reservations.|
