The Trials of Evidence-based Education explores the promise, limitations and achievements of evidence-based policy and practice, as the attention of funders moves from a sole focus on attainment outcomes to political concern about character-building and wider educational impacts.

Providing a detailed look at the pros, cons and areas for improvement in evidence-based policy and practice, this book includes consideration of the following:

What is involved in a robust evaluation for education.The issues in conducting trials and how to assess the trustworthiness of research findings.New methods for the design, conduct, analysis and use of evidence from trials and examining their implications.What policy-makers, head teachers and practitioners can learn from the evidence to inform practice.

In this well-structured and thoughtful text, the results and implications of over 20 studies conducted by the authors are combined with a much larger number of studies from their systematic reviews, and the implications are spelled out for the research community, policy-makers, schools wanting to run their own evaluations, and for practitioners using evidence.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"As this book makes abundantly clear, there is an awful lot of poorly designed, poorly evaluated research out there, and, as the authors put it, sometimes it can cause more harm than good: "ignoring such research is the most rational and safest thing to do"... If you are interested in conducting research, this is a great book."

Helene Galdin-O-Shea, Schools Week
