December/January 2015Vol. 15, No. 11Promising Practices Network's Programs That Work
The RAND Corporation recently published a report summarizing the Programs That Work section (as of June 2014) of the Promising Practices Network (PPN) on Children, Families, and Communities website. The website pages list programs that met preestablished criteria for exhibiting "proven" or "promising" ratings with regard to evidence of effectiveness. Programs meeting the standards were summarized on the site.
The RAND report reproduces these summaries in order to create a permanent archive for policymakers, researchers, and other stakeholders. The report also sorts programs by various indicator categories, such as delivery setting, age of the child during the intervention, and outcomes improved. Programs That Work, From the Promising Practices Network on Children, Families and Communities is available at http://www.rand.org/content/dam/rand/pubs/tools/TL100/TL145/RAND_TL145.pdf (3 MB).
