This morning, The New York Times ran an article about the Institute of Education Sciences ’What Works Clearinghouse, which houses data from randomized, clinical trials that evaluate science and math curricula.

On a broader scale, the effort has the potential to shift the education field toward deep and rigorous clinical evaluations to determine what really works.
So far, 175 studies are underway or finished with results posted.
