What Counts and What Should Count as Evidence

Publication Summary

In this chapter, we present our views on the place of experimental design in evidencebased policy-making and practice. Learning where we agree should help readers identify where they can be relatively confident about method choice. Learning where we disagree may help them identify which method choice decisions remain problematic, and where maximal caution is required in evaluating claims about new knowledge for improving the outcomes from education.
