Is the Learning-Focused Instructional Framework research-based and evidenced-based?
The Learning-Focused Instructional Framework is a purposeful collection of the top research-based learning strategies and evidence-based practices. You can find specifically which strategies and practices are integrated in the framework in our books, plus the references to the research and school evaluations that deem them having the highest impact on student achievement.
In addition, there have been several independent analyses conducted to provide evidence of the effectiveness of the Learning-Focused Instructional Framework. These meet the criteria set by the US DOE for “evidence-based blind studies”. A few of the analyses have looked at individual schools, while others have examined data across many schools, and another one examined the data by individual teachers.
