Evidence of effectiveness
Results from a randomized controlled trial (RCT) evaluation published in 2011 (Allen et al.) supported the effectiveness of the My Teaching Partner- Secondary program (MTP-S) for middle and high school students. This evaluation included 2,237 grade 6 through 12 students enrolled in schools in US Southeast. This evaluation found that students receiving the program showed statistically significant academic achievement (measured by standardized end-of year test performance) than the control group one year post the intervention year (controlling for baseline equivalence).
Results from a randomized controlled trial (RCT) evaluation published in 2011 (Mikami et al.) supported the effectiveness of the MTP-S program for middle school students. The study included 1,423 grade 6 through 12 students enrolled in rural and suburban schools in US Southeast (Black/African American and Hispanic/Latinx = 36%; student body eligible for FRPL = 40%). This evaluation found that students receiving the MTP-S program had significant increases in observed positive peer relationships at post-test (outcomes reported after one semester or the follwing academic year after baseline based on cohort grouping of the treatment groups).
