‘Asking More: The Path to Efficacy’ brings together articles from some of the world’s leading education practitioners and business people to highlight the urgent opportunity for a global focus on outcomes in education. The pamphlet explores how research and data collection can enable a revolutionary degree of rigour in measuring and improving the success of learning products and educational programmes. The authors consider priorities and barriers to learning outcomes and suggest possible solutions on the path to efficacy.
The report sits alongside a sister publication ‘The Incomplete Guide to Delivering Learning Outcomes’, which outlines Pearson’s own efficacy programme and shares the company’s strategy and initiatives in its first phase. The report is authored by Pearson’s Chief Education Advisor, Sir Michael Barber, SVP of Efficacy, Saad Rizvi, with a foreword from former Pearson Chief Executive Marjorie Scardino.
