Resource Description

This resource addresses the topic: Evaluation.

Using Research and Reason in Education: How Teachers Can Use Scientifically Based Research to Make Curricular and Instructional Decisions
Paula J. Stanovich and Keith E. Stanovich
This publication discusses three ways schools and teachers can provide evidence about the effectiveness of their instructional methods. Student achievement can be demonstrated by formal testing implemented by the teacher, school district, or state; by published findings of research-based evidence; and through proof of reason-based practice that builds on the research evidence. Each method has advantages and disadvantages. The authors encourage teachers to become more skilled independent evaluators of educational research. (42 pages)
