When looking for a mental health solution, research tells the story for what you can expect. Using BASE Education, our partners experience:
- Improved academics
- Decreased truancy
- Improved student engagement
- Decreased negative behaviors.
Research Study 2019
In this study we compare outcomes in domains related to school engagement, emotional/behavioral engagement, and emotional/behavioral disaffection. We find an upward trend over the course over a five- week period in key well-being indicators for users of BASE, and a downward trend in our control group, showing that over time BASE helps students not only maintain their well-being, but it leads to improvements in key areas, while a student not using BASE can expect their well-being to decline in most domains overtime.
Using BASE responses and Firewords™ detection, we can gain useful insights on how students are doing. On average, students reveal 10 personal details of their life per module, allowing teachers and other staff a greater understanding of what they may be going through. With Firewords™, one can receive notifications for entries that contain potentially dangerous language, making it easy to prioritize which students need help the soonest.
Excelsior Case Study
This study demonstrates the utility of BASE in therapeutic environments, for students already identified as having social and emotional difficulties. At Excelsior, a therapeutic boarding school, BASE was not only found to improve social and emotional outcomes, but also academic performance.
University of Nevada, Las Vegas Case Study
This study explored how BASE Education’s curriculum impacted academic performance in math among at-risk/high-need 8th-grade students. The BASE Education platform was used to address student coping skills and to teach students to manage their behaviors.
