Evidence-based practice: why number-crunching tells only part of the story

Randomised Controlled Trials are a very good research method that can help radically reform education in order to meet the needs of the individual and society today.

An excerpt from Rebecca Allen’s blog: “Social contexts change faster than evolution changes our bodies. Whilst I would guess that taking a paracetamol will still relieve a headache in 50 years’ time, I suspect that the best intervention to improve pupil motivation and engagement will look very different to those we are testing in an RCT today. This means that our knowledge base of “what works” in education will always decay and we will have to constantly find new research money to watch how policies evolve as contexts change and to re-test old programmes in new social settings.”
