Database makes program search easier

By: Dr. Cheri Shapiro, Director

Today’s post is all about lists, lists, and more lists!  I have written a few times about the lists or registries of evidence-based interventions that are available to guide organizations, providers, and policymakers in exploration and selection of potential programs.  Today, I add one more to the “list of lists” — the Results First Clearinghouse from The Pew Charitable Trusts.

Designed for policymakers, The Results First Clearinghouse Database brings together information from multiple national clearinghouses in order to make the search for programs easier.  A color system is used for rating programs based on the strength of supporting evidence that also acts as a “crosswalk” from other rating systems (e.g. those used by NREPP or Blueprints).   And, searches result in a downloadable database!

Happy hunting!
