The evidence-based educational reform was initiated in the field of medicine and now has become a cutting-edge reform wave in the world. As a new pattern of educational reform, it aims to optimize educational decision-making and practice and promote the improvement of education quality, using scientific research evidence. Contrary to experience-based traditional education practice, evidence-based education emphasizes scientific support and data collection, transforms the individual experience into replicable regional experience, and provides scientific basis for implementation of educational policies, strategies and programs.
