In this section you can search through all the reviews available on this website. Simply select the review topic you want, for example "primary maths", from the list on the left.
All the reviews included on this site are "systematic reviews", conducted by experienced researchers. Such reviews collect, appraise and synthesise all research evidence that exists in relation to a particular topic in order to provide a reliable and useful overview. In other words, the researchers have done the hard work of reading every piece of evidence and you can simply read their findings.Within each review topic, for example "primary maths", you will find both the full report and an Educator’s Summary, which summarises the full report. We recommend that you read the Educator’s Summary first, and then move onto the full report if you would like more detailed information.
The American Educational Research Association (AERA) gave its 2009 Review of Research award to the BEE Review for primary mathematics. The paper Effective Programs in Elementary Mathematics: A Best Evidence Synthesis, was considered “outstanding” by AERA.
Author Robert Slavin was presented with the award at the AERA Annual Meeting in April 2009.
