The What Works Clearinghouse: Looking Back on 2018

In 2018, the What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) focused on creating online group design training, new tutorials on finding evidence, videos, infographics, and summaries to help users identify and apply relevant research.

Online group design training available

The WWC now offers the entire group design training online, including how to become a WWC-certified reviewer. All users can now access the training, which consists of nine modules, rather than go through the two-day, in-person training to become a WWC-certified reviewer. Since their launch, the training materials have been viewed more than 18,500 times.

Two new tutorials on finding evidence

WWC presentations provide information about the U.S. Department of Education’s evidence definitions used by grant programs.
