REAP has published a series of meta-analytic articles reviewing the state of the evidence for transfer of arts learning to non-arts cognitive achievement. The Executive Summary reviews the major findings from REAP. In addition, REAP’s work has been widely discussed in Beyond the Soundbite: Arts Education and Academic Outcomes (Winner & Hetland, 2001a), in a dedicated issue of the Arts Education Policy Review, in commentary on National Public Radio, and in articles and letters in The New York Times, Education Week, and numerous other newspapers and magazines. Hetland and Winner also contributed summaries of research on arts transfer to a volume published by the Arts Education Partnership entitled Critical Links: Learning in the Arts and Student Academic and Social Development. Ellen Winner and Lois Hetland have published a critique of this volume in the Arts Education Policy Review, entitled Beyond the Evidence Given.
