The Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness is offering a new tool to make evaluations of education programs more transparent for both researchers and education policymakers.

The Registry of Efficacy and Effectiveness Studies allows researchers to lay out the methods and other details of their evaluations in advance, to ensure the studies can be tracked and replicated.

It comes as states and districts seek effective school interventions under the Every Student Succeeds Act amid continued debates in the research world about high-profile education studies that have not repeated their results over time.

The registry is also expected to help school and district leaders find education evaluations, even if the studies are published behind a journal paywall.

Vol. 38, Issue 13, Pages 4-5
