Design, Sites, and Data Sources
The programs evaluated in the studies that are part of THE-RCT vary in content, delivery mode, duration, and intensity.
Design: Each study that will be included in THE-RCT database used a random assignment research design to study the effectiveness of a program. Eligible students were randomly assigned either to a program group, whose members were eligible for the program under study, or to a control group, whose members were eligible for all available services other than the program under study.
Data: The database will include studies’ baseline survey data and transcript, enrollment, and degree data from administrative sources.
