Welcome to the What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) group design standards training. The WWC offers this training to inform the public about the key elements of the WWC group design standards, increase transparency of our review process, and promote the use of high quality, rigorous research.

This training series includes five modules, each focused on a different aspect of the WWC group design standards. We recommend viewing the modules in numerical order. Start with the Introduction video, which describes the goals, topics, and organization of this training.

If you view all five modules on WWC standards in this training series, you will earn a certificate of completion. When you complete the final module, choose the "Print Certificate" menu option on the left to receive your certificate.

Completing this online training course is one step toward becoming certified in the WWC group design standards. Becoming certified also requires completing the WWC Procedures Training, which builds on the five modules on WWC standards, and includes modules on the WWC’s procedures for reviewing studies and reporting findings. In addition, the certification process requires earning a passing score on a certification exam. We expect to be able to offer the WWC Procedures Training and the certification exam online sometime during 2017.
