"Whenever and Wherever We Choose..." The Replication of Success for All.
Slavin, Robert E.; And Others
This paper presents a summary of data from one program, Success for All, that is in the process of making the transition from local pilot to national model. Earlier evaluations of Success for All in its original home, Baltimore (Maryland), have shown that it can be highly successful in increasing reading achievement among very disadvantaged students. One of the most important elements of Success for All is the use of tutors to support student success. Students are assigned to heterogeneous age-grouped classes with regrouping for reading into classes of 15 students grouped by ability. Family support is another feature of Success for All that was incorporated into the replication efforts. Replication efforts in Philadelphia (Pennsylvania), Charleston (South Carolina), Memphis (Tennessee), Fort Wayne (Indiana), Caldwell (Idaho), Montgomery (Alabama), Charleston (West Virginia), and Wichita Falls (Texas) are described. Evaluation results for the 15 schools in the 7 states clearly show that the program increases student reading achievement and that it can produce effects in replication sites like those of the original site. Eleven figures illustrate the analysis. (Contains 20 references.) (SLD)
