The latest addition to the BEE is a review of research on reading programs for students in grades 6-12. We applied the most rigorous standards we've ever used, excluding studies using researcher-made measures, post-hoc studies, and very small studies, yet we still found 64 very high-quality studies.
The review concluded that individual and small-group tutoring and cooperative learning were most effective, but there were numerous additional programs with positive effects.
We are now working on a project we call Evidence for ESSA, which is reviewing research in all areas to communicate to educators which programs meet standards of evidence described in the Every Student Succeeds Act. Evidence for ESSA will provide a free website designed to be easy to use by educators. We're starting with elementary and secondary reading and math, which will launch in February, 2017.
