MetadataShow full item record
This report provides the results from the evaluation of the seven Social and Character Development (SACD) programs on one cohort of students as they moved from third through fifth grades starting in fall 2004 and ending in spring 2007.3 The evaluation examined the effects on these students of the seven programs, together and separately, after 1, 2, and 3 school years and also estimated the impact on students’ growth in social and character development over the 3 years. Chapter 1 discusses the evaluation of the programs when considered together and provides summary results for each program. Chapters 2 through 8 detail the findings for each of the programs individually. There are two appendixes: appendix A examines whether the addition of the smaller second cohort of students to the study affected the results, and appendix B contains additional technical information concerning the analyses.
