Evidence of effectiveness

Results from a quasi-experimental designed (QE) evaluation conducted in the 2019-2020 academic year (unpublished report written in 2020) supported the effectiveness of Emotional ABCs Premium Schools for early elementary students. This evaluation included 473 grade 1 and 2 students in urban, suburban, and rural school districts in the U.S. Northeast, Midwest, and West region (white = 67%; Black/African American = 14%; 45% of student body eligible for FRPL at participating schools).
