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). Based at the University of York, the IEE develops, evaluates, and disseminates effective education programmes, and promotes evidence-based policies.
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.
To share any comments or questions, to nominate reviews for inclusion, or for any other purpose, please contact us at:
