About the Best Evidence Encyclopaedia UK

The Best Evidence Encyclopaedia UK (BEE UK) is a free website maintained by the Institute for Effective Education (IEE).

The website reflects an original US version which was created by the Johns Hopkins University Center for Data-Driven Reform in Education (CDDRE) with funding from the Institute of Education Sciences, US Department of Education.

The BEE UK is intended to give educators, policy-makers, and researchers fair and useful information about the strength of evidence supporting a variety of programmes available for pupils of both primary and secondary school-age.

The site provides summaries of scientific reviews produced by various authors and organizations, as well as links to the full texts of each review. The summaries are written by IEE/CDDRE staff members and sent to review authors for confirmation.
