Social Science and Evidence-based Everything: The Case of Education.
Oakley, Ann
Educational Review, v54 n3 p277-86 Nov 2002
Pressures for evidence in social science and educational research suggest a need for systematic research review and synthesis. Four challenges this poses for the social sciences are (1) critical consideration of how the social sciences differ from medicine; (2) reduction of bias in evaluation; (3) better methods for assessing different research designs; and (4) softening of the rhetoric of the paradigm wars. (Contains 36 references.) (SK)
