A research brief by the International Science and Evidence-based Education Assessment - an initiative of UNESCO MGIEP to more reliably achieve educational goals based on values and policies (Brighouse et al., 2018), quantitative and qualitative traditions should complement each other to strengthen the quality and impact of empirical research under the broad banner of evidence-based education. And since human learning and development are the cornerstones of educational goals, the domains contributing to educational research rest on a vast number of areas, including in the following fields: learning sciences and cognitive science (psychology and neuroscience [behaviour and brain processes]); computer science (computer-based learning systems, learning analytics); economics; and social sciences (the learner and their broader context).
