Master thesis projects in the field of education: who says we need more basic research?


Karin Hannes and 2Wim Van den Noortgate

The majority, however, will start a career in practice. These students are in need of a particular set of skills that enables them to develop accurate search strategies to find relevant studies, to critically appraise and to interpret the results from the studies retrieved.

It follows that the growth potential for systematic reviews conducted as a master thesis project in educational sciences is considerable.
