The Center for Research Use in Education presents the results of analysis of data collected from over 150 schools nation-wide who participated in the Survey of Evidence in Education for Schools (SEE-S), a measure designed to understand the actions and activities that educators are involved in concerning the use of evidence in decision-making. This report, Survey of Evidence in Education for Schools (SEE-S) Descriptive Report, is to broadly portray research use in U.S. schools at scale to better understand where we are as an educational system in the more than forty-year journey to improve the role of research in education policy and practice. This report answers five key questions:
1. What are the nature and depth of schools’ use of research to inform policy and practice?
2. What are practitioner perspectives on the gap between research and practice?
3. Are practitioners well prepared to use research?
4. Where do practitioners turn for research-based information?
5. To what degree do practitioners engage in research brokerage activities?
The Survey of Evidence in Education for Schools (SEE-S) Descriptive Report Executive Summary is also available.
