We were fortunate to host John Jerrim from the UCL Institute of Education, the author of the EEF Study which has attracted some academic controversy. John kindly agreed to present the study and took questions from the audience.
Giovanni Sala from the University of Liverpool is one of several academics who have questioned the EEF’s methodology. He kindly agreed to present his criticisms in a manner accessible to the many of us without PhDs in statistics, for which we were extremely grateful.
Video records of both these sessions can be watched below.
