OPRE plays a central role in advancing understanding and disseminating knowledge about research and evaluation methods and tools that are, or could be, used to enhance knowledge about program and policy effectiveness. The purpose of the Methods Inquiries project is to organize meetings that bring together expertise from varying disciplines and policy fields and from academia, government, and the private sector to explore innovations in research design, analytic techniques, and data measurement that could be employed to advance the government’s use of rigorous research methods. These meetings ensure that OPRE‐supported research continues to represent the most scientifically advanced approaches to determining effectiveness and efficiency of ACF programs.
