What are evidence standards for evaluating math and science programs? Join experts from the American Institutes for Research (AIR) for an engaging webinar about evidence standards. Presenters will discuss the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Tiers of Evidence and the What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) evidence rating system and how these evidence standards relate to evaluating math and science programs. The presenters will discuss how participants can use these resources to strengthen their existing and proposed study designs. This webinar is designed to be interactive and there will be time for audience participation and questions.
This webinar is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation (DRL-1813777). Opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed during this webinar do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation.
