With growing interest in using evidence-based programs across the Federal Government, this video emphasizes how the PII approach exemplifies the four criteria of evidence-based policymaking.

PII Approach

September 25, 2015

PII is distinguished by its integration of implementation science and rigorous evaluation, known as the PII Approach. This approach supports the implementation of an intervention, as planned, and the use of data-informed decision-making in preparation for undergoing a rigorous evaluation.

The PII-TTAP team provides training and technical assistance to support the PII grantees in better meeting the needs of children and families by developing/adapting, implementing, and scaling up interventions in child welfare. PII-TTAP accomplishes this by providing innovative yet practical training and technical assistance; building capacity for implementation within PII grantee organizations through knowledge dissemination; developing tools for effective application and transfer of implementation best practices; and actively coordinating and collaborating in implementation and evaluation activities.

This report provides an overview of the purpose of the supplementary analysis as well as a summary of key findings. In the supplementary analysis, data from the NIS-4 and the National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System (NCANDS) were used to examine the comparability of information reported by the two studies on children investigated by Child Protective Services (CPS), including data on the number of children investigated, the dispositional outcome of investigation, the types of maltreatment experienced by children, and the children’s age, sex, and race/ethnicity.

The PII approach integrates the tenets of implementation science and program evaluation into a coordinated framework to support and evaluate this initiative. This report describes this collaborative approach to implementation and evaluation that is currently underway.
