Success for All is the most extensively evaluated of all comprehensive school-reform programs, and studies evaluating it have used the most rigorous standards.

  • Success for All was the highest-rated scale-up winner in the 2010 U.S. Department of Education Investing in Innovation (i3) competition, which required "gold standard" evidence of effectiveness.
  • Success for All was evaluated in a three-year randomized control trial — the “gold standard” of research — between 2002 and 2006. Students in SFA schools achieved at significantly higher levels than similar students in control schools. The difference in only three years was enough to cut the black-white achievement gap in half. (Borman, Slavin, Cheung, Chamberlain, Madden, and Chambers 2007)
  • A meta-analysis of research on twenty-nine models categorized Success for All as one of only three programs with the “Strongest Evidence of Effectiveness.” (Borman, Hewes, Overman, and Brown 2003)
  • Fifth graders in Success for All schools performed a full grade level higher than fifth graders in comparable schools.
  • Placements in special education were cut in half. (Slavin and Madden 2012)
