Recognizing the Role of Research and Evidence in Out-of-School Time

From the guidance series: "In this guidance series from AIR, we describe:

  • Research versus evidence, how they are the same and how they are different – and how afterschool and summer programs can (and should!) make the most of this time of opportunity (read Guide 1 online).
  • What we know from decades of research on afterschool and summer learning programs to ensure that programs are grounded in the research and driving toward the evidence (read Guide 2 online).
  • What evidence-based means for afterschool and summer learning programs (read Guide 3 online).
  • Strategies to leverage the historic investment in afterschool and summer programs, including a guide for creating an evidence-based logic model (read Guide 4 online)."
