IES PRACTICE GUIDENCEE 2008-4020U.S. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
 
The Institute of Education Sciences (IES) publishes practice guides in education
 to bring the best available evidence and expertise to bear on the types o systemicchallenges that cannot currently be addressed by single interventions or programs.Authors o practice guides seldom conduct the types o systematic literature searchesthat are the backbone o a meta-analysis, although they take advantage o such workwhen it is already published. Instead, authors use their expertise to identiy themost important research with respect to their recommendations, augmented by asearch o recent publications to ensure that research citations are up-to-date.Unique to IES-sponsored practice guides is that they are subjected to rigorous exter-nal peer review through the same oce that is responsible or independent reviewo other IES publications. A critical task or peer reviewers o a practice guide is todetermine whether the evidence cited in support o particular recommendations isup-to-date and whether studies o similar or better quality that point in a dierentdirection have not been ignored. Because practice guides depend on the expertiseo their authors and their group decision-making, the content o a practice guide isnot and should not be viewed as a set o recommendations that in every case de-pends on and ows inevitably rom scientifc research.The goal o this practice guide is to ormulate specifc and coherent evidence-basedrecommendations or use by educators addressing a multiaceted challenge thatlacks developed or evaluated, packaged approaches. The challenge is turning aroundlow-perorming schools. The guide provides practical, clear inormation on criticaltopics related to school turnarounds and is based on the best available evidence as judged by the review team. Recommendations presented in this guide should notbe construed to imply that urther research is not warranted to judge the eective-ness o particular strategies or turning around ailing schools.
