Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT) / Randomized Field Experiment

Refers to an experimental research design in which participants are randomly assigned to a treatment or a control group. Most social scientists consider random assignment to lead to the highest level of confidence that observed effects are the result of the program and not other variables.



Programs and practices found under this topic area encompass both dropouts and expulsions. The status dropout rate represents the percentage of 16- through 24-year-olds who are not enrolled in school and have not earned a high school credential (either a diploma or an equivalency credential such as a General Educational Development [GED] certificate). Retrieved from: Fast Facts: Dropout Rates  

Programs that support good discipline practices and address school dropouts help deter future juvenile delinquency.
