NFER research explores the development and pilot of Evidence for the Frontline

20 July 2015

NFER’s research is exploring the development of Evidence for the Frontline (E4F) – a brand new service that can signpost teachers and school leaders to relevant evidence on what works in improving teaching and learning.

The service is being developed by schools for schools. E4F can also put teachers in touch with evidence experts or with other schools working on a similar issue. The Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) is funding the development and evaluation of the service.

NFER is undertaking the independent formative evaluation. Through interviews and surveys, NFER will explore how the service is used and what difference it makes to teachers’ use of research in practice. The findings from the pilot will be used to develop and evaluate the service further.
