Mission The aim of TIER is to develop knowledge about evidence-based education to be used by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (OCW) in its policy preparation and assessment activities, by policy implementers, such as educational institutes, to allocate resources and aid in teaching-related decision-making, and by parents and pupils when choosing a school or programme of study.
'Evidence-Based Education' will be developed along various tracks within the research institute as currently conceived, by:
- performing an independent cost-effectiveness study,
- performing reviews and meta-analyses of the cost-effectiveness of interventions,
- assessing the quality and usability of existing studies,
- making the findings of the abovementioned research available and accessible, presenting these findings and taking responsibility for their dissemination,
- strengthening knowledge and stimulating a positive attitude towards evidence-based education within the field of education.
Addition Het instituut is een samenwerking van drie universiteiten, de Universiteit van Amsterdam, Universiteit Maastricht en de Rijksuniversiteit Groningen.
