At least two Study Reviewers independently assess the evaluation research for each program and the meta-analysis research for each practice under consideration by CrimeSolutions.gov. All Study Reviewers are subject matter and research methodology experts who complete training and certification prior to reviewing studies. Lead Researchers select the evidence base, coordinate the review process, match programs with Study Reviewers based on expertise, and resolve any scoring discrepancies prior to a program being assigned a final evidence rating. Study Reviewers use a standard Scoring Instrument to determine whether a program achieves its goals.
