The Best Evidence Encyclopedia is a free website created through funding from the United States’ Department of Education. It provides educators and researchers with useful information about the strength of the evidence supporting a variety of subjects and is suitable for all pupils up to Year 11.
The Encyclopedia provides summaries of scientific reviews produced by many authors and organizations, as well as links to the full texts of each review. The summaries are written by members of the Center for Data-Driven Reform in Education and sent to review authors for confirmation.
The reviews include meta-analyses or other quantitative collections that apply consistent, scientific standards to bodies of evidence, which meet high standards of methodological quality and evaluate realistic implementations of programs currently available to educators.
In listing research, EdCentral makes no judgment or recommendation as to its quality, validity or methodology and none should be inferred. Through peer ratings left by education practitioners, EdCentral’s aim is to support the development of a repository of shared knowledge and experience.
