New INSIGHTS: Testing the Efficacy of INSIGHTS for Promoting Positive Learning Environments and Academic Achievement in Nebraska
Principal Investigator: Gwen Nugent
Funding Agency: Institute of Education Sciences (IES)
Award Date: Jun 1, 2023
End Date: May 31, 2024
INSIGHTS is a temperament-based emotional and behavioral skills intervention that has been found in a previous Institute of Education Sciences efficacy trial to reduce disruptive behavior, improve attention skills, and improve reading and math achievement of economically disadvantaged children.
Despite promising evidence, no trials of the efficacy of INSIGHTS have been conducted outside of inner-city New York, leaving in question the applicability of the program to other community settings. This study aims to replicate the efficacy of INSIGHTS with a different sample and in a different context.
This replication study will assess the usability, fidelity and feasibility of the technology-enhanced programs, and will compare student, teacher and parent outcomes of the New INSIGHTS to data collected in prior efficacy trials.
