CCKM: Canadian Centre for Knowledge Mobilisation

Canadian Centre for Knowledge Mobilisation is an organisation that works to promote evidence-based knowledge. They have a number of literacy resources, as well as information on the effectiveness of one-on-one tutoring. The organisation provides tools such as in-depth reviews of a wide variety of evidence related to research on an issue, or brief information documents.

CCKM creates tools that make knowledge mobilisation easier and more effective by responding to the needs of users. The users are researchers who need protocols for bringing their findings to decision makers, and decision makers who need quick, convenient, and accurate reports of evidence. CCKM tools allow users to "drill up" or "drill down" on research evidence. For example, Research SPOTLIGHTS feature a sub-group of studies selected from a systematic Review of Evidence, whereas a Fact Sheet highlights the Review in just one page.
For an example of a Review of Evidence, download the Single Sex Schooling Final Report.
