First, the models are grouped according to the National Institute on the Education of At-Risk Students research program or center with which they are affiliated. Second, the models are listed according to the grade levels upon which they focus. Lastly, a cross referencing system matches each model with specific educational priorities which research has shown are important in improving achievement for students placed at risk. A table depicting the cross referencing system also is included.
