Using research tools to improve language in the early years (URLEY)
This evaluation is led by the Behavioural Insights Team (BIT), working in partnership with NIESR. The impact evaluation consists of a two-armed randomised control trial involving around 120 primary schools with nursery classes. The evaluation is exploring the impact of the programme on children’s language and social-behavioural development, as well as the impact on changes in practice among early years practitioners. The process evaluation is exploring implementation, delivery and perceived impact.
The evaluation is funded by the Education Endowment Foundation. It will be completed in Summer 2019. More information about the project is available on the EEF website project page.
