High quality implementation of educational approaches can have a significant impact on improving students’ outcomes. In Australia, there is very little research on the implementation of practices and approaches in real-world classrooms and school settings.
A new report commissioned by Evidence for Learning and conducted by the Centre for Evidence and Implementation (CEI) has reviewed studies from around the world covering implementation in schools. The academic report and its summary of key findings is a first of its kind in Australia, identifying crucial elements of implementation that ensure approaches are given their greatest chance to improve outcomes for students.
The report explores the role of implementation in high quality educational practice through the research question,
'What is known about the role of implementation in providing effective teaching and generating positive learning outcomes for school aged children in primary and secondary education?'
Based on a systematic scoping review, the goal was to explore whether particular implementation concepts or strategies in school settings have been shown to be effective in supporting teaching and improving student outcomes.
