What works or what's worked? Evidence from education in the United Kingdom.

Katsipataki, M. and Higgins, S. (2016) 'What works or what's worked? Evidence from education in the United Kingdom.', Procedia, social and behavioral sciences., 217 . pp. 903-909.


This paper deliberates the quality of existing evidence on educational school-based interventions aiming to improve pupils’ attainment. An overall picture as well as more specific examples derived from the “Sutton Trust-Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) Teaching and Learning Toolkit” will be discussed presenting different cases and versions of the Toolkit (Early Years Toolkit). The main sources of studies are meta-analyses and systematic reviews with quantitative data, where they have enough information for the calculation of effect sizes (ES). This is an ongoing project; so some representative finding will be discussed providing a best estimate of what is likely to be beneficial in a number of areas of educational practice.
