With teachers and schools being encouraged to become more evidence-based, the Institute for Effective Education has released this resource to help education practitioners understand research methods, interpret evidence and decipher jargon. The guide provides explanations of the different kinds of evidence found within educational research such as blogs, case studies, interventions and meta-analysis and how to interpret their use. The guide discusses concepts such as bias, identifying common pitfalls and areas where readers tend to misinterpret information, arguments and discourse. This guide will be useful for individuals looking to differentiate truth from fiction and interpret research and analysis.
