The What Works Clearinghouse (WWC), managed by the Institute of Education Sciences on behalf of the U.S Department of Education, is a resource to help educators make informed decisions about available school and classroom programs, practices, and interventions. Using a systematic and comprehensive review process by teams with content and methodological expertise, the WWC and identifies studies that demonstrate credible, reliable evidence of intervention effectiveness. Reviews have been conducted in 14 core topic areas, including student behavior (emotional/internal behavior, social outcomes, social-emotional development, and knowledge, attitudes, and values). Findings are summarized in the online searchable database. To date, over 10,500 reviewed studies and 700 publications are available in the database.
