NFER Evidence for Excellence in Education

Self-Review Tool for research engagement in schools and education providers


Self-Review Tool

Welcome. This free tool from NFER shows you how to use evidence and enquiry to make a difference in your school or college. Once you have reviewed how research-engaged your school or college is against eight key statements, the tool generates a personalised chart and report and then signposts key resources to help you move forwards.
