Doing research that matters

We have published the first report in a new initiative called TLRI Project Plus. The idea of the series is to synthesise findings and draw some lessons from across a number of TLRI projects. The first in the series is called Doing research that matters: A success story from statistics education and was written by NZCER chief researcher Rosemary Hipkins. It explores two projects with a common focus on aspects of students' statistical thinking capabilities.

Dr Hipkins says anyone interested in what makes a successful TLRI project will find the report useful reading, "as will people thinking about ways to keep teaching and learning future focused."
