A Closer Look at Scientifically Based Research: How to Evaluate Educational Research
T.H.E. Journal, v31 n9 p24 Apr 2004
The No Child Left Behind Act has brought research, particularly scientific based research, beyond discussions in graduate schools and back into the consciousness of educators in the field. For many educators, it has been a long time since those discussions, and key concepts about educational research may have become hazy. In this fourth article of a six-part series, a refresher/primer on how to evaluate educational research is presented. The article is comprised of two parts: (1) a brief article by Dr. Doris Redfield, a noted researcher at AEL; and (2) a checklist put out by the U.S. Department of Education's Institute of Education Sciences (IEL), the organization overseeing the What Works Clearinghouse.
