Good quality research is critical to guide effective practice in responding and preventing bullying in schools. What to look for in research describes the most important features needed to ensure research is well conducted and has valid findings. Being aware of these features helps schools find well-conducted research about effective practices. This protects schools against claims that may not be valid and which can lead to a waste of time and resources on programs and practices with limited or no evidence of effectiveness.
