Many educational programmes claim to be evidence-based or supported by research, but it can be difficult to assess these claims or compare the evidence for different programmes. Evidence 4 Impact (E4I) aims to overcome this difficulty by providing a simple evidence rating system, along with concise evidence summaries, which enable you to make a well-informed judgement on the extent to which a programme's effectiveness is proven.
Central to E4I is a comprehensive database of programmes available in the UK, including details on their effectiveness and cost, together with links to the providers and experts who can offer further support. The database can be easily searched by key stage, subject area and targeted group, so that results are tailored to the specific needs of your class or school.
E4I is an initiative from the Institute for Effective Education (IEE), which has established itself as one of the leading education research units in the UK. Based at the University of York, we are working to establish what works in teaching and learning - and why.
E4I will be updated regularly to include new programmes or to take new research into account. If you have developed or are using a programme which is not included in the E4I database, please do not hesitate to contact us using the form provided.
