Online WWC Training: Single-case Design Standards

The What Works Clearinghouse Single-case design (SCD) training is now available on the WWC website. WWC group design reviewers and SCD researchers can now become certified reviewers of SCD studies by viewing video modules and taking the certification exam.

This training is intended primarily for researchers and applied analysts interested in becoming WWC certified reviewers of SCD studies. This training is also relevant to SCD researchers who are interested in designing studies that meet WWC standards and how the WWC quantifies effects from SCD studies. Participants must be certified in the WWC group design standards to complete SCD certification.

The training covers the following topics:

  • An overview of key features of single case design and design variants
  • Criteria for review eligibility, determining a study rating, and assessing evidence standards
  • How to use the SCD study review guide
  • The design-comparable effect size for SCDs, including considerations for data extraction and effect size estimation
