In 2020, the Q Project surveyed and interviewed nearly 500 Australian educators to understand what is involved in using research evidence well in schools. This is a topic that has been investigated surprisingly little, both in Australia and internationally.

This Discussion Paper offers a unique practitioner perspective on quality research use. It presents educators' views on using research well in terms of key characteristics and connections to the Quality Use of Research Evidence Framework.

It also outlines considerations for teachers, school leaders, system leaders, researchers and research organisations in relation to increasing and improving the quality use of research in schools.

The Q Discussion Paper 2nd Edition (September 2022) includes updated data and references.
