Upcoming Webinar: What Does it Take to Study the Use of Research Evidence? Methods & Measures

The Foundation seeks studies to identify, build, and test strategies to improve the use of research evidence in policy and practice. For researchers pursuing this work, a fundamental challenge is the question of how to assess the use of research evidence.

On Tuesday, November 27, join the William T. Grant Foundation and Drew Gitomer for a webinar to highlight measures and methods from a range of methodological traditions that have been employed by researchers to assess the use of research evidence in disparate policy and practice domains. Gitomer, the Rose and Nicholas DeMarzo Chair in Education at Rutgers University, will draw from his upcoming Foundation-sponsored paper outlining core methodological issues in the study of the use of research evidence, which reviews recent studies that illustrate specific data collection and study design methodologies and discusses the affordances and limitations of each. Senior program officer Kim DuMont will close the webinar with a brief overview of our call for proposals for research on improving the use of research evidence, including a summary of the application process and the Foundation’s selection criteria for funding.
