Top Institute for Evidence Based Education Research
The Top Institute for Evidence Based Education Research (TIER) is an inter-university Top Institute that conducts research in the field of evidence based education. The Top Institute has three partners: the University of Amsterdam, Maastricht University and the University of Groningen.
The research group TIER wants to contribute to the improvement of the quality of education in the Netherlands by promoting an ‘evidence based’ approach as a guiding principle in education policy and practice. It intends to accomplish this by developing (cost-) effective education interventions, based on scientific research and scientific insights.
