Educational research

Educational research is research which investigates the behaviour of pupils, students, teachers, and other participants in schools and other educational institutions. Behaviour is often investigated by examining work products such as documents and standardized test results.

The methods of educational research are derived chiefly from the social sciences, and in particular from psychology.
