Best Evidence Encyclopedia -- Empowering Educators with Evidence on Proven Programs | 21st Century English Language Learners, Teachers and Administrators | Scoop.it
Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

About BEE:

 

"The Best Evidence Encyclopedia is a free web site created by the Johns Hopkins University School of Education's Center for Data-Driven Reform in Education (CDDRE) under funding from the Institute of Education Sciences, U.S. Department of Education. It is intended to give educators and researchers fair and useful information about the strength of the evidence supporting a variety of programs available for students in grades K-12.

 

The Best Evidence Encyclopedia provides summaries of scientific reviews produced by many authors and organizations, as well as links to the full texts of each review. The summaries are written by CDDRE staff members and sent to review authors for confirmation."

 

I recommend this excellent teacher resource site.
