In addition, an executive summary is available separately, and there is also a short video overview, six video case studies with notes, a video summary of the case studies and two further documents for ITT providers aimed at supporting their planning and evaluation of TDA-funded projects. The r
The influence of context on attainment in primary school: interactions between children, family and
This resource is one of a series of research reports published by the Centre for Research on the Wider Benefits of Learning, Institute of Education, London. The report explores the influence of social and personal development which takes place in home and school environments, and how it may help influence children’s achievement. The report considers the relative importance of four different contexts, or ‘spheres of influence’ on pupil achievement in England at Key Stage 2 (age 10/11). The
Do teachers matter? Measuring the variation in teacher effectiveness in England
The resource, a Centre for Market and Public Organisation (CMPO) working paper, uses a primary dataset that links over 7000 UK pupils to the individual teachers who taught them for their compulsory subjects in their exams at age sixteen. The study then attempts to estimate the effect of individual teachers on student outcomes and so the variability in teacher quality.
Aspirations: The views of foster children and their carers

The core services of TACT are fostering and adoption, although they also offer a range of services to empower and support young people and their families. This is intended to be an initial report for a longitudinal study of the 2007 cohort of children and foster carers to
An examination of beginning teacher learning during the induction year

Governing by Numbers? Shaping Education through Data
This resource is a CES (Centre for Educational Sociology) briefing paper sketching an analysis of the effects of European Union-sponsored collection of data on the education systems of the member states. The analysis is part of a study funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), "Governing by Numbers", itself part of a larger study funded by the European Science Foundation (ESF), Fabricating Quality in European Education Systems (FabQ).
Teacher Evaluation: Current Practices in OECD Countries and a Literature Review
This resource is one of a series of OECD Education Working papers disseminating the results of studies to a wider readership. Here the focus is on analysing current practices regarding teacher evaluation together with a review of recent literature. The field examined covers both primary and secondary sectors. The study begins with a survey of the key features of teacher evaluation schemes in use and then proceeds to a more discursive and comparative approach looking at the challenges, advantages
Whose data are they? Ethics in case study research
Professor Jerry Wellington provides a commentary on a sample chapter on ethical issues from 'Case Study Research In Practice' by Helen Simons. Most people undertaking research in their own school or college will be involved in some form of ‘case study research', for example by investigating their own classroom practice or teaching methods. Few will have the time or resources to conduct a large scale, ‘randomised' investigation - hence this chapter on the ethics of conducting case study work
Language Learning at Key Stage 3: The impact of the Key Stage 3 Modern Foreign Language Framework an
This resource is a report on a two year study into language learning at Key Stage 3 in England, carried out at Cambridge University at the behest of the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF). The study was commissioned to investigate both provision and practice, and was to look particularly at the impact of the Key Stage 3 Framework for Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) and other recent initiatives with respect to languages, such as the impact of language entitlement in Key Stage 2 a
Learning Gender in Primary School Playgrounds: Findings from the Tomboy Identities Project
This paper was presented at Exeter University in 2006, as part of Seminar Four (Cultures, values, identities and power) of the ESRC Teaching and Learning Research Programme (TLRP) Thematic Seminar Series, Contexts, communities, networks: Mobilising learners’ resources and relationships in different domains. The study followed two classes from Year 5 through to Year 6 in two contrasting primary schools, exploring primary pupils’ outdoor play in relation to the construction of gender identitie
The Rhetoric of ICT and the New Language of Learning: a critical analysis of the use of ICT in the c
This academic paper, published in the European Educational Research Journal, is a study of how information and communication technologies (ICT) are perceived in educational settings. It seeks to establish a critical link between the political rhetoric of ICT within the Norwegian education system and what the authors refer to as a new 'language of learning' that ICT can help to facilitate.

An approach for the interoperation of web-distributed applications with a design model
This paper defines the data and inference requirements for the integration of analysis applications with a product model described by a CAD/CAE application. Application input conditions often require sets of complex data that may be considered views of a product model database. We introduce a method that is compatible with the STEP and PLIB product description standards to define an intermediate model that selects, extracts, and validates views of information from a product model to serve as inp
Study on the collaborative design process over the internet: A case study on VRML 2.0 specification
In this paper, we analyze the process of VRML 2.0 (Virtual Reality Modeling Language, Version 2.0) specification design for the deeper understanding of Internet-based collaboration. The VRML design process has the characteristics of being open to the public, geographically distributed, long-term, large-scale, and diverse. First, we examine the overall features of the design process by analyzing the VRML mailing list archive statistically. Secondly, we extract prototyping vocabulary (operational
