Resources Supporting the Use of Evidence in Education

What does it mean to be Empowered by Evidence? An educator’s top priority is success for each student. Evidence-based strategies are strategies, practices or activities that have been evaluated and shown to improve student outcomes.

Using evidence-based strategies to support students with diverse needs – coupled with a comprehensive continuous improvement plan and sustained implementation – goes a long way to enable success for every student.

Ohio is committed to assisting educators in this effort and to ensuring Ohio’s Empowered by Evidence initiative will serve as a dynamic and growing resource that is practitioner-focused and responsive to the needs of educators.


Ohio’s Evidence-Based Clearinghouse

Ohio’s Evidence-Based Clearinghouse is intended to empower Ohio’s districts with the knowledge, tools and resources that will help them identify, select and implement evidence-based strategies for improving student success.

Resources within Ohio’s Evidence-Based Clearinghouse explain the many benefits of evidence-based strategies and help educators identify those strategies that meet ESSA’s evidence-based levels 1, 2 and 3. Ohio’s Evidence-Based Clearinghouse also offers information and access to other national clearinghouses and research reviews that districts may want to use. Ohio’s districts are not required to use Ohio’s Evidence-Based Clearinghouse nor does Ohio endorse or require the use of any other specific evidence-based clearinghouse. Districts may use the clearinghouses, research reviews and other resources they find most useful.
