Updates to Evidence for ESSA: New Sections on SEL and Attendance

The Evidence for ESSA website, previously launched by Bob Slavin and his group at Johns Hopkins has been very popular among education leaders seeking reliable evidence on educational programs. To date, the evidence-based programs featured on the website have focused on PK-12 reading and math, and programs continue to be added and updated as evidence is gathered in these areas.

Using funds from the Gates Foundation, Slavin and his group have launched two new sections on the website, focused on social-emotional learning and attendance. 

Users can search within each section for particular programs that are designed for whole class or targeted support, programs for certain grade levels, and programs with particular features or measured outcomes. In addition, search criteria include demographic categories such as student sub-groups and type of community (urban, rural, etc.).

The site offers an easy method for determining evidence-based interventions for K-12 education.
