Practical guide to evaluating interventions

We commissioned Work Psychology Group – a research consultancy which develops insight driven, practical tools – to undertake research and develop resources to help those designing interventions to evaluate them. This guide will help you evaluate the effectiveness of interventions aimed at addressing differential attainment. It offers practical ideas on how to make your evaluation a success, including measures you can use and adapt.

The TASO toolkit

The Centre for Transforming Access and Student Outcomes (TASO) was established in 2019 as part of the government’s “What Works” movement. TASO’s aim is to eliminate equality gaps in higher education within 20 years.

To better understand the effectiveness of interventions, they recommend that robust monitoring and evaluation should be built into interventions from the start.

Their toolkit summarises the existing evidence on approaches to widening participation and improving student success for disadvantaged and underrepresented groups. It will expand over time as more evidence becomes available.
