The Impact of a School-Based Academic and Counseling Intervention on the Lifepaths of Youth: An Independent Evaluation of the Institute for Student Achievement.
Ben-Avie, Michael; Steinfeld, Trudy Raschkind
The Yale Child Study Center's Impact Analysis and Strategies Group conducted a three-year, independent evaluation of the Institute for Student Achievement (ISA), which is a multi-site, school-based intervention program for students placed at risk of failure. The evaluation design triangulated: (1) student outcomes; (2) the level and quality of the students' youth development; and (3) the quality of program implementation at the sites. The research included direct observations of academic enrichment and counseling sessions; retroactive analysis of achievement data; cohort analysis of the class of 2000; a student learning and youth development survey; a staff survey; and extensive interviews. The quality of implementation varied. The findings show that when implemented well, there is a significant positive ISA effect on student outcomes. (Contains 1 figure, 3 tables, and 15 references.)
