The NEW What Works Clearinghouse Website

what works clearinghouseThe Institute of Education Sciences is pleased to launch the new What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) website,  making it easier for users to find educational interventions that make a difference. The new WWC website includes:

  • An enhanced Find What Works (FWW) feature that allows educators and policymakers to find interventions that scientific evidence shows have had a positive impact on student outcomes. The new FWW feature allows users to learn whether research was conducted with students like theirs and to compare interventions to find the right fit for their classrooms
  • Improved website navigation that allows visitors to quickly find what they are looking for, whether that is practice guides that feature evidence-based recommendations for the classroom, intervention reports that summarize the evidence on specific programs or policies, or information about the thousands of studies that the WWC has reviewed
  • A Review of Individual Studies feature that lets users get in-depth information on thousands of studies that have been reviewed by the WWC and see if the research met our rigorous study standards

To develop the new design and enhanced features, the WWC team conducted an analysis of website statistics and inquiries to the WWC Help Desk. The team also surveyed website users and held virtual and in-person focus groups with school and district leaders, researchers and academics, state administrators, parents, and educators across the country.
