Information for schools, research and evaluation

In all aspects of the education process it is important to evaluate the effectiveness of practices in order to inform the development of quality services.

Why should the Educational Psychology Service be involved in research and evaluation?
Psychologists are trained in a wide range of research designs and methodologies and are ideally placed to advise and undertake planned research and evaluation studies. Educational psychologists also facilitate schools in carrying out their own action research.

Examples of educational psychologists’ involvement in research:

  • Strathclyde Higher Order Reading Skills
  • VIG
  • Child Care Initiative
  • SNAP
  • Managing Children’s Behaviour
  • Stakeholder Evaluations
  • Early School Leavers
  • Pupil Participation in ASL processes
  • Patterns within Child Protection referrals
  • Evaluation of the Partnership Forums
