Through the grant program on Statistical and Research Methodology in Education (Methods), the Institute supports research to advance education research methods and statistical analyses. The long-term outcome of this research program will be a wide range of methodological and statistical products that will better enable education scientists to conduct rigorous education research.

The Institute is interested in the development of practical statistical and methodological products (e.g., methods, guidelines or other methodological resources, software) that can be used by most education researchers (rather than only by statisticians and researchers with highly sophisticated statistical skills) to improve the designs of their studies, analyses of their data, and interpretations of their findings.

For the FY 2017 competition, the Institute is competing two topics: (1) Regular Grants and (2) Early Career Grants for researchers who completed their doctorates on or after April 1, 2012. The topics share the same requirements except those regarding personnel, maximum project duration, and maximum award amount.
