Research-informed schools evaluation

About the study

We've evaluated two different projects aimed at helping schools become more research informed.

Our evaluations looked at whether these two projects were practical and feasible and if they had any impact on schools’ decisions, teacher behaviour or pupil outcomes. 

The projects ran in Rochdale and Ashford and the evaluations were funded by the Education Endowment Fund.
