|program name||level of evidence"Supported by evidence, promising direction or emerging"||bystander"Bystander programs engage men and women not (primarily) as potential perpetrators or victims, but rather as potential bystanders to situations involving sexual or intimate partner violence. Bystander prevention programs presume that all members of the community have a role in shifting norms to prevent violence.... The bystander model includes tools and ideas for action and strongly encourages each person to make a difference." (Gibbons & Evans, 2013, page 5)||empathy"Empathy-based programs give participants the skills to understand sexual violence, provide compassionate responses to disclosures, and reduce the likelihood of sexual assault perpetration by males." (Gibbons & Evans, 2013, page 4)||dispelling
rape myths"These programs address common misconceptions and myths about circumstances, causes, and realities of sexual violence. Topics often include rates of assault and reporting, definitions of consent, and clarifying common circumstances of assault." (Gibbons & Evans, 2013)

The program provides a customizable combination of modules using the following presentation strategies: peer presenters, survivor testimonials, video-based scenarios, bystander testimonials, student interviews, and animations. It is interactive, asking students questions during the presentation of materials and uses social norming by displaying their peers’ responses. The program also contains a pre- and post-test for measuring learning outcomes which can be fully edited to meet campus needs.
Campuses can select any combination of the 19 modules offered. The self-guided program can run anywhere between 45 and 90 minutes, depending on the customization.
Not Anymore can be customized to include campus-specific definitions and policies and also supports a campus-specific introduction video. Student Success will work with each campus to establish single-sign-on access to the program, can integrate completion data with many LMS systems, and can be customized in terms of testing and the reporting of that data. The program can be close-captioned in English and Spanish, is screen reader-compatible, and contains Audio Description for visually-impaired students.
There is one version for undergraduates students, with a unique versions available for: community college students, graduate students, and faculty and staff.
|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.
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.
