Greg Marchant, a past editor of MWER, and now an Associate Editor of the Newsletter for Educational Psychologists posed the following question to anyone who cared to answer: "Why are research results in educational psychology seldom reflected in educational policies, and what can be done to improve the application of research findings to practice?". Several respondents noted that while there are numerous examples of research findings that can easily be turned into useful classroom applications, many of them languish in our academic journals because they are written by researchers, for researchers, and in the language of researchers. This column has attempted to address this problem.
