Advancing Evidence Synthesis

At the Education Collaboratory, we are advancing the science of educational evidence synthesis.

The Innovation

What we do: We undertake rigorous, relevant, and intellectually nuanced review studies that support a more complete and comprehensive articulation of the science of learning and social and emotional development. Topical inquiries include social and emotional learning competencies, interventions, pedagogies, outcomes, and policies, and inclusive education pedagogies, practices, and policies.

How we do it: We advance open science practices and pre-registration in evidence synthesis. To date, we have completed the first fully transparent and replicable Registered Report of a meta-analysis to be published by Child Development. This work now stands as the precedence for HOW to conduct an evidence synthesis and is the new best practice. Accordingly, all reviews we conduct, including scoping reviews, are pre-registered to be fully transparent and replicable.
