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.

Research Findings
School engagement trends up for users of BASE, compared to a downward trend for users in the control group. +0.16 LSM (least square means) for users of base, vs. -0.15 for users in the control group
School Social Connectedness trends up for users of BASE, compared to a downward trend for users in the control group. +0.06 LSM (least square means) for users of base vs. -0.11 for users in the control group.
Behavioral Disaffection trends down for users of BASE, compared to an upward trend for users in the control group. -0.09 LSM (least square means) for users of base, vs. +0.09 for users in the control group.

Summer 2018

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.

Research Findings
On average, participants disclosed 10 personal aspects of their lives per module.
Out of 283 unsafe Firewords, 122 contained violent themes. There were also 13 threats of violence, 19 mentions of self-harm and suicide, 18 with evidence of substance use and addiction, 66 with Firewords contained depressed themes, and 45 with evidence of bullying.

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.

Research Findings
29 / 50
Participants showed increased academic performance in reading after using BASE.
32 / 50
participants demonstrated an improvement in academic performance in mathematics after using BASE
According to teachers, 94% of clients benefited from BASE on behavioral, social, and emotional levels.

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.

Research Findings
Mathematic performance was assessed through pre, mid, and post-study testing. Over the course of the nine-week study, 94% of the students using BASE increased their evaluation test scores by at least 20%, while in the control group, 47% of students improved their performance on the evaluation test.
Final data showed that test group individuals scored an average of 28% increase in mathematical academic performance compared to the control group’s 13.2%. The team concluded that the target group receiving intervention was better prepared emotionally than the control group, considering the lessons for math in both classes were aligned and followed the same lesson plans.
