This guide describes the updated YJB Standards of Evidence that it uses to classify submissions made by practitioners to the Library of Effective Interventions. The Standards of Evidence presented here both update and replace the previous standards used by the YJB to assess submissions to its library previously.

The aim of the guide is to describe how the YJB, and its Effective Practice Classification Panel will assess the evidential strength of submissions of good practice. In doing so it also provides a guide to inform those practitioners or others wishing to submit examples.

We will use these Standards of Evidence to identity the highest quality approaches/interventions (in turn helping users of our Effective Practice materials understand which interventions they can have the most confidence in), while at the same time discovering those which would benefit from further evaluation.
