Our approach to research is to embed research in educational evaluation so that, as far as possible, data is collected as routine evaluation.  This is efficient in terms of cost and allows for high volume of data collection.  Our research questions ask what drives professional practice and what techniques are effective in changing practice.  Our research has impact because we are working directly with the educators, so our findings are implemented quickly.
