New E4I website launched

Posted on 7 February 2018

A new version of the Evidence 4 Impact (E4I) website was launched this morning (7 February) at the Research Schools Network national meeting held at Shireland Collegiate Academy.

E4I is an independent service that provides teachers and school leaders with accessible information on which educational interventions have been shown to be effective. It uses a simple evidence rating system to show whether an intervention’s effectiveness has been proven.

The new website rates interventions by their impact on a range of educational outcomes at primary or secondary level including maths, reading, writing, science and will soon include social and emotional outcomes. Research Schools were invited to explore the new website to discover how users can tailor results to the specific needs of a class or school, and how the data be easily searched by key stage, targeted group and type of practice.

The day, which saw Research Schools gather together to reflect on the first term of this academic year and celebrate achievements, also included keynote speakers Sir Kevan Collins, chief executive of the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF), Professor Jonathan Sharples, senior researcher at the EEF and Dr Kathryn Asbury from the University of York.
