Evidence-based Programs

The National Institute of Justice considers programs to be evidence-based when their effectiveness has been demonstrated by causal evidence obtained through high quality outcome evaluations and that have been replicated and evaluated in at least three sites.

NIJ defines high quality outcome evaluations as those using rigorous, randomized controlled trials on programs implemented with fidelity.
