The strength of the relationship between school building condition and student performance depends on a variety of factors
Since the late 1970s, researchers have examined the relationship between school building condition and student performance. Though many literature reviews have claimed that a relationship exists, no meta-analysis has quantitatively examined this literature.
The purpose of this review was to synthesize the existing literature on the relationship between building condition and student performance.
The results revealed that the magnitude of the correlation between building condition and student performance varied as a function of a number of moderator variables. For instance, the building condition feature measured, instrument type, subject area measured, and grade level affect the association between school building condition and student performance.
These findings offer useful information for educational leaders, policy makers, and researchers.
