Conducting Research, Evaluation And Trials in Education (CREATE)
Director: Jake Anders
CREATE develops and applies expertise in the evaluation of policies and programmes in the complex field of education, with a particular focus on the use of randomised controlled trials with embedded mixed methods process evaluation.
It facilitates informed and critical engagement between strands of education research that too often does not occur, encouraging innovation and robustness of evaluation work in the field of education.
Partnership with Behavioural Insights Team (BIT)
Our partnership involves collaboration in identifying, conducting and disseminating work of mutual interest in the field of educational evaluation.
BIT is a social purpose company, jointly owned by the UK Government, Nesta (the innovation charity) and its employees. BIT started life inside 10 Downing Street as the world's first government institution dedicated to the application of behavioural sciences. The company has a deep, and widely recognised, expertise in behavioural science, field experimental design and public policy and are pleased to apply that work in the field of education with CREATE.
