Understanding Evidence-Based Programs

What is Evidence-Based Programming?

When a program is evidence-based, it has been through an experimental design, shown to work, and evaluated at a rigorous level. A research-based program means the incorporated content of a program is supported by current research. Model programs are listed on a website called Blueprints shown with the best evidence of effectiveness, but qualifications can vary by website. In order to implement an evidence-based program, content must be followed to reach the same outcomes, keeping in mind that some things may need to be thoughtfully adapted to fit the audience.
