Improving Student Outcomes and Building Positive Relationships through the BARR Model
Building Assets, Reducing Risks (BARR) is an evidence-based strategy that uses research and real-time data to increase teacher effectiveness and improve student outcomes. An AIR evaluation found that the BARR model leads to better academic performance, fewer course failures, more courses attained, and better relationships. This video shows how the BARR model is implemented at West Valley High School, in Hemet, California, and includes Hans Bos, AIR senior vice president, explaining the evaluation’s methodology and findings.
