Evidence of effectiveness

Results from quasi-experimental evaluations conducted in the 2008-2009 school year (unpublished report written in 2011) supported the effectiveness of Consistency Management & Cooperative Discipline (CMCD) for high school students in the US Southwest. The first evaluation was conducted with 1952 first-time grade 9 students (all students identified as Black or Hispanic; 93% economically disadvantaged). This evaluation found that students who received the intervention achieved higher standardized test scores for reading and math compared to students in the control group (12 months after baseline, analyses controlled for outcome pretest). The second evaluation was conducted with 344 grade 9 students who were repeating grade 9 (all students identified as Black or Hispanic; 86% economically disadvantaged). This evaluation also found that students who received the intervention achieved higher standardized test scores for reading and math compared to students in the control group (12 months after baseline, analyses controlled for outcome pretest).
