Identifying And Implementing Educational Practices Supported By Rigorous Evidence: A User Friendly Guide


The federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, and many federal K-12 grant programs, call on educational
practitioners to use "scientifically-based research" to guide their decisions about which interventions to
implement. As discussed below, we believe this approach can produce major advances in the effectiveness of
American education. Yet many practitioners have not been given the tools to distinguish interventions
supported by scientifically-rigorous evidence from those which are not. This Guide is intended to serve as a
user-friendly resource that the education practitioner can use to identify and implement evidence-based
interventions, so as to improve educational and life outcomes for the children they serve.
