  • PLS Title Small class size has at best a small effect on academic achievement
  • PLS Description Increasing class size is one of the key variables that policy makers can use to control spending on education. But the consensus among many in education research is that smaller classes are effective in improving student achievement which has led to a policy of class size reductions in a number of US states, the UK, and the Netherlands. This policy is disputed by those who argue that the effects of class size reduction are only modest and that there are other more cost-effective strategies for improving educational standards. Despite the important policy and practice implications of the topic, the research literature on the educational effects of class-size differences has not been clear. This review systematically reports findings from relevant studies that measure the effects of class size on academic achievement.
  • Title Small class sizes for improving student achievement in primary and secondary schools
  • Spanish PLS Las clases pequeñas tienen, en el mejor de los casos, un efecto leve en el rendimiento académico y pueden perjudicar a algunos estudiantes
  • Spanish PLS Description Aumentar el tamaño de las clases es una de las variables clave que los formuladores de políticas pueden utilizar para controlar el gasto en educación. Pero existe una opinión generalizada en la investigación sobre educación de que las clases más pequeñas son efectivas para mejorar el rendimiento estudiantil, lo que ha llevado a una política de reducción del tamaño de las clases en varios estados de EE.UU., en el Reino Unido y en Holanda. Esta política es cuestionada por aquellos que argumentan que los efectos de la reducción de tamaño de la clase son apenas modestos, y que existen otras estrategias más rentables para mejorar el nivel educativo. A pesar de las importantes implicancias políticas y prácticas del tema, la literatura de investigación que versa sobre los efectos en la educación de las diferencias en el tamaño de las clases no ha sido clara. Esta revisión informa sistemáticamente acerca de los resultados de estudios relevantes que miden los efectos del tamaño de la clase sobre el rendimiento académico.

  • PLS Title There is insufficient evidence to know whether recovery high schools and collegiate recovery communities are effective
  • PLS Description Based on the results of one study, recovery high schools (RHSs) may reduce high school students’ school absenteeism, marijuana use, and other drug use, and increase abstinence from drugs; but RHSs may be no better or worse than other high schools in improving grades, reducing truancy, or reducing alcohol use. It is unclear whether collegiate recovery communities (CRCs) are effective in promoting academic success and reducing substance use among college students.

  • PLS Title Policy briefs make systematic reviews easier to understand but little evidence of impact on use of study findings
  • PLS Description Systematic reviews are long and technical documents that may be hard for policymakers to use when making decisions. Evidence summaries are short documents that describe research findings in systematic reviews. These summaries may simplify the use of systematic reviews. Other names for evidence reviews are policy briefs, evidence briefs, summaries of findings, or plain language summaries. The goal of this review was to learn whether evidence summaries help policymakers use evidence from systematic reviews. This review also aimed to identify the best ways to present the evidence summary to increase the use of evidence.
  • Title Do evidence summaries increase health policy-makers’ use of evidence from systematic reviews?
  • Spanish PLS Los resúmenes de política hacen que las revisiones sistemáticas sean más fáciles de entender, pero existe poca evidencia de impacto con respecto a la utilidad de los hallazgos de estudio
  • Spanish PLS Description Las revisiones sistemáticas son documentos largos y técnicos cuya utilización puede resultar difícil para los formuladores de políticas al momento de tomar decisiones. Los resúmenes de la evidencia son documentos breves que describen los principales hallazgos las revisiones sistemáticas. Estos resúmenes pueden simplificar la utilización de las revisiones sistemáticas. Algunos nombres alternativos para las revisiones de la evidencia son resúmenes de políticas, reportes o resúmenes en lenguaje sencillo. El objetivo de esta revisión era saber si los resúmenes de la evidencia ayudan a los formuladores de políticas a utilizar la evidencia obtenida de las revisiones sistemáticas. Esta revisión también tuvo como objetivo identificar las mejores maneras de presentar el resumen con el fin de aumentar la utilización de las mismas.
