What is E4I?

Many interventions claim to be effective, but it can be difficult to assess whether there is any research to support this. E4I uses a simple evidence rating system to show whether an intervention’s effectiveness has been proven.

E4I has a searchable database of interventions available in the UK, including details on their effectiveness and cost, together with links to the providers who can offer further support. The database can be easily searched by the impact of interventions on a range of educational outcomes, key stage, targeted group and type of practice, 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). The project has received funding from the The Education Endowment Foundation. The Centre for Research and Reform in Education contributed to the project.

IEE is an independent charity. We are committed to sharing knowledge with, and between, people working in education policy and practice. IEE has established itself as one of the leading education research units in the UK. Based at the University of York, we are building support for evidence-based education, and providing expertise and practical tools wherever we can.

E4I is updated regularly to include new interventions or to take new research into account. If you have developed or are using an intervention which is not included in the E4I database, or know of research about an intervention that is, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Evidence 4 Impact is a project of the Institute for Effective Education.
