The Institute of Education Sciences last week rolled out a new version of its What Works Clearinghouse intended to help school leaders search for more specific research on programs that might satisfy the school improvement provision of the Every Student Succeeds Act.

Visitors can search for studies based on the characteristics of their schools, such as grade span, locale, and student demographics. The site also lets users search for particular practices within studies, such as summer bridge programs.

The overhaul is meant to help meet growing demand for evidence on programs as states and districts grapple with ESSA. It also responds to criticisms that the site has been hard to use.
