description: This book from the Committee on Research in Education of National Research Council is available online for free:

"Transforming education into an evidence-based field depends in no small part on a strong base of scientific knowledge to inform educational policy and practice. Advancing Scientific Research in Education makes select recommendations for strengthening scientific education research and targets federal agencies, professional associations, and universities particularly schools of education to take the lead in advancing the field."
