The Challenges of Implementing Success for All in a Canadian Context.
Chambers, Bette; And Others
This study examined the implementation of an early intervention program, Success for All (SFA), in elementary schools in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. A total of 543 at-risk students from four elementary schools participated in the study, with three schools serving as controls and one as the experimental site. Students completed achievement measures, reading tests, and a self-concept measure before and after the intervention. The SFA intervention was introduced in two stages, beginning with students in kindergarten through grade 3 in February 1995 and later including students in grades 4-6 in September 1995. All students were posttested on the corresponding pretest measures in the spring of 1996. Complete data on 128 experimental and 136 control students were considered for analysis. Analyses indicated that students in the SFA intervention program performed significantly better than control students on reading and self-concept measures. Students with special needs (mainly learning disabilities) in the SFA intervention also performed significantly better on reading measures than similar students in the control group.
