Assessment and Evaluation Research Initiative

At AERI, we remain ever-committed to our mission--promoting meaningful use of assessment and evaluation information around the world and across disciplines--with education as our primary field of action. Please take a look at our latest endeavors, and join us in events or projects that align with your interests and areas of expertise.

AERI's work is made possible through the commitments and expertise of numerous scholars, practitioners and partners who engage with us in person or virtually. Our friends today are international, multidisciplinary, and expanding. Together, we continue to learn, innovate, and search for better solutions to critical assessment and evaluation issues of the day. Thanks to our sponsors, funders, and friends for their support and interest in our work.

With the exponential spread of COVID-19 across the U.S., local actors face an urgent and immediate need to access, interpret and rank-order the most credible scientific evidence that can inform decisions in K-12 schooling environments. Starting with recent guidelines from WHO and CDC, this systematic review and best evidence synthesis will apply the GRADE and Newcastle-Ottowa criteria to screen the most effective, multilevel interventions shown to reduce lethal virus transmissions in K-12 school communities and linked populations.
