Quantitative and qualitative evidence about what works at scale.

The five tools we are using are well-established in small-scale, qualitative research.

It is also imporant to:

  • secure quantitative and qualitative evidence about what works at scale.

Working with Dr Nick Sofroniou, IER, we have drawn upon research from cluster-randomised control studies in education and ‘gold standard’ complex multi-component interventions for affective psychological problems (e.g., Roemer & Orsillo, 2011) to propose a large scale, intermediate level, quantitative evaluation to estimate the efficacy of the treatment, alongside the qualitative evaluation. If funded, our multi-element intervention will be standardised in the form of a rich and detailed handbook for the randomised control evaluation.

The handbook, currently in prototype, will be modified in the light of feedback after year 1 and then again after 2.

Teachers will be able utilize the five tools beyond the evaluation using the handbook.
