Mapping Education Research and Judging Influence. Evidence Speaks Reports, Vol 1, #17
Bruer, John T.
Center on Children and Families at Brookings
Education research is a vast, multi-disciplinary field. In trying to understand it or make judgments about importance, influence, or where the action is, it can be helpful to see the big picture and not be swayed by where we happen to sit in the field. A map of education research derived from citation data can help us see the big picture. Responses to one of Bruer's recent Evidence Speaks postings and its relation to the annual "Education Week" Edu-Scholar Influence Rankings serve as an example of how a map might help. Endnotes are included. [For a related report, "Research Base for Improved Classroom Learning: Brain or Behavior? Evidence Speaks Reports, Vol 1, #9," see ED568258.]
