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.

Corrections & Reentry

Reentry/Release

Reentry programs aim to reduce offender recidivism and successfully reintegrate an offender back into the community. Reentry efforts often begin in prison and transition into the community once a prisoner is released. Typically, reentry services include case management and assistance with housing, education, employment, healthcare, and substance abuse.
