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 tools that will better enable education scientists to conduct rigorous education research.
The Institute is interested in the development of practical statistical and methodological tools 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 2015 competition, the Institute has two categories of projects: (1) regular grants which are similar to projects that have been funded under previous competitions and (2) Early Career grants for early career researchers.
