Siddiqui, Nadia; Gorard, Stephen; See, Beng Huat – Educational Review, 2019
Schools are places where children can learn behaviour, skills and attitudes that have lifelong relevance.

Bates, Elizabeth A.; Kaye, Linda K.; McCann, Joseph J. – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
Student satisfaction is both an important and yet controversial issue within the higher education sector, which is typically measured through policy-driven metrics such as the National Student Survey.

Mansfeld, Iain – Higher Education Policy Institute, 2019
Most previous research on grammar schools has focused narrowly on eligibility for Free School Meals as a measure of disadvantage. But with 45% of pupils at grammar schools coming from families with below median incomes, a broader consideration of the impact of grammar schools on social mobility is necessary. The evidence suggests that grammar…

Data were collected from two samples of students preparing for their high-stakes…

It also investigated whether pupils' self-determined motivation mediated this relationship, such that pupils with…

Although understandings of scientific inquiry (as opposed to conducting inquiry) are included in science education reform documents around the world, little is known about what students have learned about inquiry during their elementary school years. This is partially due to the lack of any assessment instrument to measure understandings about…
