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.
This report describes ways that schools can build teachers’ and leaders’ confidence in using research evidence, and why this is important.
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 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.
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.
What does evidence look like in an early childhood education and care setting? We’ve spoken to some educators and teachers working in early childhood education and care to explore the many different types of evidence they use in their practice.
