In 2017, the Academic Mentoring Program for Educational Development (AMPED) program (formerly called the Brief Instrumental School-Based Mentoring Program–Revised) received a final program rating of Promising based on a review of the study by McQuillin and Lyons (2016). In 2020, CrimeSolutions conducted a re-review of new studies by Anderson (2019) and McQuillin and McDaniel (2020), using the updated CrimeSolutions Program Scoring Instrument. The re-review resulted in the program maintaining the rating of Promising. Promising programs have some evidence to indicate they achieved their intended outcomes.
