Achieving Student Success: A Handbook of Widely Implemented Research-Based Educational Reform Models. Publication Series No. 12.
Wang, Margaret C.; Haertel, Geneva D.; Walberg, Herbert J.
Local schools and school districts lack organized information on school effectiveness to select programs and practices to meet their specific program improvement and implementation needs. Critical program features, implementation and training requirements, program costs, program-delivery systems, program impacts, and a host of other relevant factors necessary to enable schools to make informed choices are also needed. This handbook provides information on the design and implementation requirements of a variety of alternative programs and practices, and provides information on the program-delivery mechanisms in a usable form for school personnel. The handbook contains three sections: (1) a report on findings from a synthetic analysis of the design and implementation of 11 widely implemented research-based educational reform models; (2) a synopsis of the 11 widely implemented research-based reform programs and other research-based programs; and (3) a systematic procedure for using program information for informed decision making. An appendix contains a "Program Decision-Making Framework." (DFR)
