Joyce, Kathryn E. – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2019
Within evidence-based education, results from randomised controlled trials (RCTs), and meta-analyses of them, are taken as reliable evidence for effectiveness -- they speak to "what works". Extending RCT results requires establishing that study samples and settings are representative of the intended target. Although widely recognised as…

Cartwright, Nancy – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2019
Across the evidence-based policy and practice (EBPP) community, including education, randomised controlled trials (RCTS) rank as the most "rigorous" evidence for causal conclusions. This paper argues that that is misleading. Only narrow conclusions about study populations can be warranted with the kind of "rigour" that RCTs…

Cowen, Nick – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2019
What role does scientific evidence play in educational practice? Supporters of evidence-based education (EBE) see it as a powerful way of improving the quality of public services which is readily applicable to the education sector. Academic scholarship, however, points out important limits to this applicability. I offer an account inspired by…

Wrigley, Terry; McCusker, Sean – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2019
This paper examines the insistent claims by advocates of evidence-based teaching that it is a rigorous scientific approach. The paper questions the view that randomised controlled trials and meta-analyses are the only truly scientific methods in educational research. It suggests these claims are often based on a rhetorical appeal which relies on…

Simpson, Adrian – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2019
Effect size is the basis of much evidence-based education policymaking. In particular, it is assumed to measure the educational effectiveness of interventions. Policy is being driven by the influential work of John Hattie, the Education Endowment Foundation, and others, which is grounded in this assumption. This article demonstrates the assumption…

Phillips, D. C. – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2019
EBP -- evidence-based policy and practice -- has generated intense controversy. A rough continuum of positions can be discerned: At one pole are "tough-minded" commentators distinguished by their support of EBP; however, there are serious internal differences in this camp, for some regard randomised field trials (RFTs) as the gold…

Kvernbekk, Tone – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2019
This paper discusses, compares, and contrasts 4 different models for bringing evidence from randomised controlled trials (RCTs) into practice and into practical reasoning. I look at what questions the models can and cannot answer, what role they accord to RCT evidence, and what their possible attraction for practitioners might be. The models are…

Weinstein, Rhona S. – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2018
This special issue marks the 50th anniversary of the landmark Pygmalion experiment (Rosenthal & Jacobson, 1968). It offers contributions from across the globe, attesting to universal features of teacher expectancy effects. Reviews of this history underscore controversy, advances, and few intervention studies. Empirical studies emphasise…

Hornstra, Lisette; Stroet, Kim; van Eijden, Eva; Goudsblom, Jeannette; Roskamp, Claire – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2018
Previous research has shown that teachers differentiate their behaviour based on their expectations of students. Self-determination theory (SDT) makes explicit how teacher behaviour relates to students' motivation and engagement, namely, via need-supportive teaching. In the present study, we combined both research traditions and examined…

Gentrup, Sarah; Rjosk, Camilla – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2018
This study examined the role of teacher expectations in the emerging gender gaps in reading and mathematics in the first year of schooling. Therefore, we first investigated whether boys and girls differ in their vulnerability to teacher expectancy effects. Second, we analysed whether gender-specific effects of teacher expectations contribute to…

Pit-ten Cate, Ineke M.; Glock, Sabine – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2018
Male students with immigrant backgrounds are disproportionally referred for special educational support outside regular classrooms or schools, which may reflect differential teachers' expectations concerning the academic achievement of students based on sociodemographic characteristics. Although research has indicated differential teachers'…

Agirdag, Orhan – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2018
Previous studies have shown that schools' socioeconomic-status (SES) composition has an impact on the academic performance of pupils. Less attention has been given to the explanation of this effect. This study examined whether the teachability culture among the school staff (teachers' collective beliefs about how teachable their pupils are)…

Good, Thomas L.; Sterzinger, Natasha; Lavigne, Alyson – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2018
This article reviews Rosenthal and Jacobson's (1968) seminal study, "Pygmalion in the Classroom" (PC). We consider what preceded PC, the actual study, immediate criticisms of it, Rosenthal's reactions to the criticism, and, importantly, the research that followed PC from 1968 to roughly 1990. Despite critical criticisms of it, we…

de Boer, Hester; Timmermans, Anneke C.; van der Werf, Margaretha P. C. – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2018
This study provides a systematic review of the effects of 19 teacher expectation interventions. Prior research on teacher expectations primarily focussed on correlational relationships with student and teacher characteristics, leaving open the questions of whether it is possible to raise teacher expectations and to prevent (too) low expectations…

Li, Zheng; Rubie-Davies, Christine M. – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2018
This study was designed to investigate the bases of teacher expectations in higher education. The first author interviewed 20 university teachers from an English-as-a-foreign-language course, exploring their expectations for the first-year undergraduates in their classes. The grounded theory method was adopted to analyse the data that had been…
