The Best Evidence Encyclopedia (BEE) is a free website created by the Center for Research and Reform in Education that provides reviews of various types of K-12 education programs, including early childhood programs, elementary and secondary reading and math programs, and programs for struggling students and English language learners.

To be included in the Best Evidence Encyclopedia (BEE), reviews must meet a set of rigorous research standards. Almost all BEE reviews are ultimately published in top academic journals. Our graduate students gain practical experience by assisting in all aspects of the reviews.

Educators can use the BEE for various purposes:

  • To find research support for a program or practice, or for specific types of programs, such as cooperative learning, tutoring, or technology.
  • To guide a school or district improvement process.
