Evidence of effectiveness

Results from a quasi-experimental designed (QE) evaluation conducted in the 2017-2018 academic year (published in 2020) supported the effectiveness of GiveThx for high school students. This evaluation included 243 grade 9 through 12 students in an urban school district in the U.S. West region (Hispanic/Latinx = 85%, Asian American = 10%; 80% of participating students were eligible for FRPL). This evaluation found that students receiving instruction using GiveThx showed significantly greater growth in student-report positive affect, friend satisfaction, and overall life satisfaction compared to students in the control group (outcomes reported approximately 6 weeks after baseline, while controlling for outcome pre-test). Additionally, students receiving instruction using GiveThx showed significantly greater declines in student-reported anxiety and negative affect compared to students in the control group over the same period.
