In 2012, Steps to Respect® received a final program rating of Effective based on a review of three studies: Frey and colleagues (2009); Low, Frey, and Brockman (2010); and Brown and colleagues (2011). In 2021, CrimeSolutions conducted a re-review of studies by Frey and colleagues (2005) and two studies from the original review (Low, Fray, and Brockman 2010; Brown et al. 2011), using the updated CrimeSolutions Program Scoring Instrument. (The study by Frey and colleagues (2009) was not eligible for re-review due to comparison schools’ receiving the intervention after year 1). This review resulted in the program receiving a new program rating of No Effects.
