Term Definition
intervention

any action intended to stop a process from developing or to improve a situation. In education this occurs in many areas including that of behaviour management and teaching approaches. Research studies into the effects of such interventions are often highly-prized but as with all educational issues the extent to which such interventions can be replicated or the effectsgeneralisable is always questionable (see early intervention).
