Applications now open for new round of LbQ innovation evaluation project grants

Posted on 4 March 2020

If you have an idea for an innovation in your school and want to find out whether or not it works, applications are now open for the second round of Learning by Questions (LbQ) innovation evaluation projects with grants of up to £5,000 available.

LbQ is a classroom app filled with curriculum-aligned Questions Sets providing immediate feedback to pupils and teachers. This grant round will provide schools with funding and support to run an evaluation involving the LbQ app. This might involve comparing using the LbQ app to usual teaching approaches, or comparing different ways of using the LbQ app in your school.

Projects can be in primary or secondary, and are like to be in English, maths or science. To be eligible for this round you will need:

  • A problem you would like to address
  • An outcome you are hoping to change, and
  • To be able to use LbQ as part of the project.

To help you with the process we are running a series of twilights. To register for these, and for more information about this round of LbQ innovation evaluation grants and to download the call for applications, go to the-iee.org.uk/learning-by-questions.

On this web page, you can also find information about the LbQ innovation evaluation projects that were funded in the previous round, along with final reports of evaluations carried out by London South TSA and Shireland Collegiate Academy.

If you have questions or would like advice about your proposal, please contact Alicia Shaw at the Institute for Effective Education (01904 328108, alicia.shaw@york.ac.uk).

The deadline for applications is 17:00 on Friday 3 April 2020.
