  • The procurement falls outside the scope of application of the directive
Explanation:

The EEF tool-kit is fulfilling a specific niche that uniquely matches the needs of Scottish education at a time when tackling inequity is being prioritised and the Scottish Attainment Challenge is being progressed to close the socio-economic attainment gap.

It is known that the Education Endowment Foundation Tool-kit contains accessible summaries of educational research on attainment.

It prioritises systematic reviews of research and quantitative syntheses of data such as meta-analyses of experimental studies. To be included in the analysis, an approach needs to have some quantifiable evidence base for comparison. The Tool-kit summarises over 10 000 individual studies and is a live resource which grows as new studies are published. It is extended and updated on a regular basis as new summaries are developed and as findings from EEF-funded projects and other high-quality research become available. It is primarily an international summary of research. The tool-kit has achieved a high degree of credibility and is used extensively in other countries to inform spending decisions. The high quality synthesis of research articles with a particular focus on attainment, size of effect, and investment aspects, with due regard for cultural and classroom education delivery similarities is considered exclusive. This award will ensure that educational leaders in Scotland will be provided with the high-quality of international research analysis and the quality assured local summaries they need to make informed intervention and investment decisions. The award does not affect the intention of the Scottish Government to develop and publish a Research Strategy from which research and other evaluation work may be commissioned.
