Study Review Guide for Causal Reviews

Submitted by katie on


  • CLEAR reviewers complete a study review guide (SRG) for each causal study reviewed.
  • The Main tab of the SRG captures important information about the study, including the setting, characteristics about the sample, data sources, and key findings.
  • Reviewers enter the data needed to determine whether outcomes are valid, assess attrition (if needed), and confirm statistical significance of results in the Data tab. They use this information to assign a causal evidence rating to the study.
  • Each SRG and causal evidence rating undergoes a quality assurance review by a senior CLEAR staff member.
