Free Webinar: How the What Works Clearinghouse Supports Rigorous Research
The What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) recently launched a new version of its website, whatworks.ed.gov, with new and improved tools for education researchers. The new site makes it easier for researchers to access information on what works in education, and expands and reorganizes the resources available to support rigorous research. Join the WWC on March 15, at 2 p.m. ET for a presentation tailored to researchers that explains how the WWC can support their work.
The presentation will introduce researchers to features of the redesigned website, including:
• How to search for interventions that improve a specific outcome for students in particular grades and subjects;
• How to see the findings from the individual studies that are summarized in a WWC intervention report;
• How to export data from WWC reviews for use in your own analyses.
The presenters will demonstrate the features that enable you to use these features and more. The presenters will also review where to find the WWC’s wealth of resources to help you design and implement a study that will meet WWC design standards.
The WWC is always interested in answering your questions! You can submit questions in advance of the webinar for panelists to address through the WWC Contact Us form. You will also have an opportunity to ask questions to the presenters during the Q&A portion of the webinar.
