Our approach

A rigorous process for evaluating impact developed with independent experts you can trust

Oxford University Press works closely with teachers to develop the most impactful resources. Oxford Impact provides us with a way of demonstrating– in a structured and consistent way – that our products and services make a real difference.

Oxford Impact Framework

At the heart of Oxford Impact is the Oxford Impact Framework: a rigorous process for evaluating impact developed with the National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER), and supported by Oxford University Department of Education.

We are proud to have worked with these highly respected organisations to create a trustworthy and robust Framework, giving you reassurance around the integrity and consistency of how we evaluate and report on impact – or efficacy as it is sometimes known.

Oxford Impact studies

Using the Oxford Impact Framework, we carry out impact studies, which assess the change an OUP product or service has on the group of people it is intended to help or benefit. An impact study investigates changes that have taken place during the product’s use and the extent to which these changes can be attributed to that particular product.

Undertaking impact studies enables us to gain a deeper understanding of how our educational products and services support the outcomes that matter most. As we undertake more studies, we will continue to learn from what we do and further build on our skills and knowledge around evaluating impact.
