Where’s the research?

I am very much in need of research to support the prevailing trends and popular methologies in world language education today.  I embrace concepts such as comprehensible input, communicative language teaching, and integrated performance assessment, but I need data to show that such concepts are superior to traditional grammar methods and tests.  I have to be able to support my position with data, facts, figures.

I have my stack of Foreign Language Annals that I rarely seem to have time to read, and I have the internet.  What I really need is one place where I can find it all, articles dealing with research in these areas that are in layman’s terms and to the point. 

Anyone out there who can help?
