Introducing MOSAIC from American Institutes for Research
The American Institutes for Research® (AIR®) recently launched the Methods of Synthesis and Integration Center (MOSAIC). The center supports projects that synthesize evidence across multiple studies to inform stakeholders and create evidence-based solutions in education, health, international development, social welfare, and the workforce. At MOSAIC, leading experts in evidence synthesis methodology work to develop state-of-the-art synthesis tools. AIR’s Martyna Citkowicz, Laura Michaelson, David Miller, Josh Polanin, and Ryan Williams lead the center.
Earlier this year, MOSAIC researchers, sponsored by the Institute of Education Sciences, completed the largest systematic review and meta-analysis of mathematics intervention effects to date. AIR shared the results of the project, including the underlying data, through an interactive web tool that enables users to “build their own” meta-analysis. The tool summarizes results from more than 200 mathematics intervention studies from the last 25 years and presents the results through a host of analytics and visuals.
