Without understanding the current state of evidence use across Australian education, we can’t provide the best possible support to teachers, educators and policymakers to use evidence in their practice. AERO is examining how evidence is currently used in early childhood education and care (ECEC) and schools. 

Our evidence use survey

Our evidence use survey asked Australian educators and teachers how they use evidence in their practice, helping us to understand the current state of evidence use in Australian education. 

Explore below some findings from the survey.
