Success for All. What Works Clearinghouse Intervention Report
What Works Clearinghouse
"Success for All"[R] is a program for students in pre-K through eighth grade that focuses on reading, writing, and oral language development. Using a whole-school improvement approach, the goal of "Success for All"[R] is for all students (including English language learners) to read at grade level by the end of the third grade. The program consists of 90 minutes of daily instruction, during which time students are grouped by their instructional level rather than their current grade level. Students are moved to new reading groups every quarter based on their progress in pursuit of the program's goal. The What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) identified 30 studies of the impact of "Success for All"[R] on English language learners that were published or released between 1983 and 2012. Eight studies are within the scope of the English Language Learners review protocol but do not meet WWC evidence standards. Four studies did not establish that the comparison group was comparable to the intervention group prior to the start of the intervention. Three studies had only one unit assigned to one or both conditions, which makes it impossible to attribute the observed effect solely to the "Success for All"[R] intervention. One study had a separate technology intervention used in addition to "Success for All"[R] in some intervention schools and no comparison schools, which makes it impossible to attribute the observed effect solely to the "Success for All"[R] intervention. Fourteen studies are out of the scope of the English Language Learners review protocol because they have an ineligible study design. Eight studies are out of the scope of the English Language Learners review protocol for reasons other than study design. A glossary of terms is included. (Contains 2 endnotes and 7 additional resources.)
