What works in education? The Best Evidence Encyclopedia (BEE) presents reliable, unbiased reviews of research-proven educational programs to help policy makers, principals, teachers, and researchers do their jobs. Here are examples of how you can use the BEE in your work.
Researchers tasked with conducting a study of an educational program can use the BEE to identify other rigorous studies to use as a benchmark for their own work. The BEE’s full-text reports of research reviews list hundreds of bibliographic entries, many of which come from “gray literature” that would otherwise be time-consuming for researchers to locate. To offer an additional basis for future research, the BEE includes articles on review methods used to compare studies and reach conclusions on the strength of effectiveness of education programs.
