Investigating Positive Action

Welcome to our project website!

Here you will find information and updates on the Investigating Positive Action (IPA) project at Boise State University.

Positive Action is a school-wide social-emotional curriculum that seeks to strengthen social and character development, reduce problem behaviors, and enhance academic performance for students.

This “retrospective efficacyā€¯ project aims to investigate how Positive Action achieves its effects, for whom and under what conditions Positive Action is most effective, and how variations in program implementation and student exposure relate to student outcomes.
