This blog’s aim is to bring research and evidence to bear on educational questions. I also plan to explore some over-arching questions about the methods and methodology of applied social research, knowledge exchange and use, and ‘evidence-informed’ policy and practice.
I do not expect to blog regularly, mostly as a way of bringing research papers (mine and others’) to a wider audience. Nonetheless, I hope it will be worth watching this space for when I do. You can follow the blog by email by putting your email on the right. I promise not to flood your inbox with too many ramblings!
Here are some blogs I have written so far:
- A Rapid Review of Remote and Blended Teacher Education: What is it? Does it work? How can we make it effective?
- School progress measures are a missed opportunity for a fairer and more informative approach
- Why new school performance tables tell us very little about school performance
- Progress 8, Ability bias and the ‘phantom’ grammar school effect
