Sources of evidence

ByMike Bell

This chapter provides a detailed discussion on three main sources of evidence and focuses on five research reviews. The sources of evidence include classroom evidence, educational psychology, and educational neuroscience. The five research reviews are all from well-known and respected teams who have brought together a significant number of individual research reports and combined their results to create their lists of effective methods or principles of effective teaching. The first three sources are from classroom experiments – the method is tried out on whole classes and the results compared with the control-group classes. The other two are from Educational Psychology.
