Common-Sense Evidence: The Education Leader’s Guide to Using Data and Research by Nora Gordon and Carrie Conaway 

Common-Sense Evidence is a concise, accessible and practical guide that helps educators and school leaders find and interpret data and research, and then put that knowledge into action. Nora Gordon and Carrie Conaway aim to empower educators and schools in their use of evidence-based improvement strategies. Recommendations include utilising existing research; generating evidence on the success of their own improvement efforts; and building an organisational culture of evidence use. The authors walk readers through the processes for determining whether research is relevant and convincing; explain useful statistical concepts; and show how to quickly search for and scan research studies for the necessary information. The book directs readers through case studies of typical scenarios, including efforts to reduce chronic absenteeism; to improve student performance on exams; and to recruit teachers for rural schools. Common-Sense Evidence is highly relevant and applicable to the Irish context as it can support teachers and school leaders in building capacity for evidence-based practice in their schools and the wider school community. 

* The eBook which this recommendation relates to is freely available to all registered teachers via the eBook collection in the Teaching Council’s online library. Readers of this ezine who are not registered teachers will not have access to this eBook, as they are not covered by the Teaching Council’s licence for the Education Source collection.
