Latest Video Describes How to Use the What Works Clearinghouse Links in ERIC Records

ERIClogoHave you noticed that some ERIC records now link to What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) study pages? The WWC study pages – new on the WWC’s new website – have all of the data from studies reviewed, including a description of the sample, study design, findings, and research methods. If the WWC has reviewed a study that is in ERIC, a link is provided to the WWC website so that ERIC users can access all of the information available – along with a link back to ERIC in the citation on the WWC study page.

Our latest video shows how to use the new links and walks through the WWC study pages. The video shows how a researcher can drill down into specifics about the study and access additional information and resources. This information can be accessed through one of the four tabs (Review Details, Findings, Sample Characteristics, and Study Details) available on a WWC study page. In the video, we walk through each respective tab and point out the wealth of information and resources that can be accessed.

By linking ERIC and the WWC, users are now connected to a wealth of information beyond what’s found in an individual ERIC record. The links strengthen the connection between ERIC and the WWC, and make data easier to access across these programs.
