We absolutely love the work of the Sutton Trust UK and the Education Endowment Foundation. Both are UK charities which look at researched and evidence-based approaches to improving educational outcomes for economically disadvantaged students.
The image above demonstrates the effectiveness of a variety of interventions put in place to improve students outcomes for post-primary students. They have another one for primary students also as the evidence is different for different age groups. The effectiveness is measured via the months of progress gained vs the cost of the initiative.
Looking at the most promising interventions which are: Feedback; Metacognition; Peer Tutoring and Homework.
This is a huge piece of research which has over 200 different sources.
We will be exploring this research in more detail in our Rathú online courses this summer!
Using the EEF website (click the picture for link) you can explore all the methods which they researched and read exactly what they mean by each and how it works best.
An excellent resource being used by school leaders globally to support them to put the best interventions in place!
