Robust evidence is vital in informing the development of strategy and policy that will improve outcomes for learners and the system as a whole. We develop and disseminate robust evidence on the impact of ICT on education.

Reports and publications

Given the Government's continuing investment in ICT in education, the importance of rooting policy and practice in a secure evidential base continues to grow.

This section contains publications from desk-based research, fieldwork and other research activities undertaken or managed by Becta. There are also a number of reports published by Becta on behalf of other organisations.
