Early literacy approaches support the development of foundational skills. This guide outlines key practices for supporting literacy in early learning settings.
Numeracy is the application of mathematical concepts, with skills developing along trajectories from birth. This guide outlines practices to support numeracy in early learning settings.
The Currency, Relevance, Authority, Accuracy and Purpose (CRAAP) test helps you to evaluate non-academic sources of evidence, such as a webpage.
Partnering with Learning First, we investigated issues influencing the effective use of evidence in policy development through a desktop review and interviews with senior policymakers.
This national snapshot presents findings on the current use of evidence by teachers and leaders in Australian schools. We examine attitudes towards and use of various types of evidence, and challenges and enablers in using evidence.
Examples of practice demonstrate effective practice in different education settings. You can use them to think about how to apply the practice in your own context.
This resource provides 3 examples of how systems can support the use of evidence and evidence-based practices through professional learning.
This worksheet helps you to reflect on a piece of research. The research you choose to reflect on should be about a particular education policy, program or practice (that is, an approach) that you may be considering using in your school, service or classroom.
Targeting sentence-level instruction is critical in order to develop foundational skills in writing. Sentence combining is an instructional technique used to improve sentence quality, complexity, and variety.
This report describes ways that schools can build teachers’ and leaders’ confidence in using research evidence, and why this is important.
Using evidence-based practices, and using them well, is a critical way to improve student outcomes. Evidence-based practices are practices supported by research, that is, there is broad consensus in the research community that they work.
This case study from Elevation Secondary College in Melbourne describes how the school built a professional learning community to develop teachers’ confidence and self‑efficacy, build effective leadership and create a consistent learning experience for students.
This report outlines findings from a desktop review of “what works” for evidence intermediaries and the barriers and enablers to implementing evidence in education.
Better use of evidence leads to improved student outcomes. But sometimes schools find it difficult to create and sustain a culture of evidence use on their own.
This publication summarises available evidence on writing and writing instruction. While the literature on writing instruction is modest compared with reading, and the quality of the research is variable, there are a number of findings and recommendations that can be drawn.
This report discusses AERO’s 2022 analysis of student writing data – the most extensive investigation into this area ever conducted in Australia.
