I enjoy school now - Outcomes from the Check and Connect trials in New Zealand

Cathy Wylie and Rachel Felgate

This is an evaluation of the Check and Connect programme, which was part of the Ministry of Education's Positive Behaviour for Learning strategy.

Check and Connect orginated in the United States, where it had good evidence of success. This report provides the findings from an evaluation of the trial of the programme in New Zealand, focusing on the changes made by students with at least one year's experience on Check and Connect, at the main three trial sites, by the end of 2015. It shows that most participating students and their mentors noted positive gains from the programme.
