How do I conduct a search?
When you click on the Evidence-Based Initiatives tab, a search and filter menu will appear on the right side of the page. This menu shows options for different filters including Topics & Outcomes of initiatives, WSCC Area, School Level, School Locale, and Type of Initiative (see Glossary tab for definitions on the types of initiatives). You will see the number of Evidence-based initiatives in parentheses on the right side of the filters you choose as you go along.
Once you click submit, the results will show up, and you can click the “Read More” button to get the details of each initiative.
Do I have to choose an option for all of the different filter categories?
No, you do not need to select a filter for each category. You can be as broad (e.g., all rural initiatives) or specific (e.g., Classroom Behavior, Before/After School, Elementary Schools) as you’d like to be when filtering. You may also simply search by keyword.
What if my search yielded no results?
There may be different reasons for this situation:
The search terms used may be too specific (e.g. some articles do not specify school locale). → Try unchecking a few filters on the search menu or trying different search terms.
The initiatives included in this site are a result of a literature review process that included publications from 1987-2017. More recent articles are not yet included and/or there are not any available publications that met the research quality standards on the topic you searched for.
Can I bookmark/save an initiative I liked or found especially useful?
Yes, at the bottom of each initiative description, you will see a bookmark button. Clicking this button will “favorite” the initiative. Your favorites will show up on the right side-bar below the search menu any time you return to the page.
