    Training
    Social data is a powerful resource for providing insights into the factors that shape people’s lives. A solid understanding of techniques for analysing social data and the interpretation of results ensures that policies and practices are based on evidence. ISSR shares its statistical expertise with policy makers and practitioners through the flagship training program, Methods for Social Analysis and Statistics (MFSAS).
  • Parental engagement and children’s education outcomes

    Both parental engagement and parental educational beliefs and expectations play critical roles in a child’s educational outcomes. Keeping children engaged in education is central to improving a range of symptoms generally associated with disadvantaged communities. This project will investigate the longitudinal effects of parental engagement and academic socialisation on learning outcomes.
  • Respectful Relationships Program Evaluation

    ISSR has been commissioned by the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA) to undertake a longitudinal outcome and process evaluation of multiple funding initiatives aimed at preventing sexual assault through education.

    This project involves an outcome and process evaluation of the relevant educational programs funded under the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA) Respectful Relationships scheme since 2009.

    The overall evaluation will examine the efficiency of implementation of different educational programs, the effectiveness of these programs in achieving the desired attitude and behaviour change in the target population and how the programs and sites are delivering against aspects of the National Association of Services against Sexual Assault’s (NASASV) National Standards for Prevention of Sexual Assault through Education.
