Theoretical Basis For Approach

In order to bring social impact to intellectual content, Student Success builds on situated and communal learning theories that treat intellectual content not as the primary consideration but as of secondary concern relative to its place in a cultural context. Not Anymore accomplishes this not only by communicating its content through peers, but also by presenting that content as a social force, such as by helping students understand how understanding rape myths can facilitate rather than impede sexual interaction. Part of the social force of the Student Success method also comes through technological social norming techniques that confront students with how their individual conceptions of social issues, e.g. of binge drinking, differ from the national reality. The program’s technology presents students with their own pre-test responses to given questions and then contrasts their pre-test responses against statistical realities.

In addition to the social force, Student Success taps into an essential emotional level of learning. Drawing on overwhelming research that increased engagement correlates with stronger learning outcomes, the online pedagogy contextualizes otherwise abstract content within more material structures, such as authentic accounts of rape, dating violence and stalking. Finally, Student Success draws on other contemporary methods of inducing behavioral change, such as motivational interviewing, which prompts program participants to solidify and articulate their own ways of overcoming real and perceived barriers to growth.

Program Effectiveness

There are no peer-reviewed studies of Not Anymore. Student Success reports that clients using Not Anymore report extremely positive reviews of the program from students as well as improvement in student attitudes, intended behavior and learning outcomes as measured by the pre- and post-tests.

CONSIDERATIONS FOR ADMINIsTRATORS

Not Anymore relies heavily on student (not actor) testimonials that are very powerful but may also be disturbing for some students. The program warns viewers of potentially triggering scenes with a trigger warning.  Another strength of Not Anymore is the diverse set of narratives, including a testimonial from a Deaf survivor and multiple examples of LGBT relationships.
