Straight Talk on Evidence

Aug 11,2017 | Consortium staff Resource of the Month

Straight Talk on Evidence is a new initiative of the Laura and John Arnold Foundations (LJAF) Evidence-Based Policy team. Its purpose is to distinguish credible findings of program effectiveness from the many others that claim to be, through an easy-to-read, no-spin digest of recent program evaluation findings.

The team systematically monitors evaluation literature, and selects studies to report based on factors such as their policy importance and level of press or policy attention. Straight Talk on Evidence will post evidence reports on a bi-weekly basis on their website.
