We develop and apply standards for assessing the quality of existing studies, synthesizing the results of high-quality research to help clients and practitioners use evidence more effectively in policy decisions and practice. Dissemination includes a wide variety of channels, including reports, presentations, webinars, and briefings, to ensure decision makers have access to the best available evidence.
Examples of our work in this area include:
- What Works Clearinghouse
- Home Visiting Evidence of Effectiveness
- Strengthening Families Evidence Review
- Employment Strategies for Low-Income Adults Evidence Review (ESER)
