All regional educational laboratories (RELs) provide technical assistance through applied research and development projects. These projects are targeted primarily to educators and policymakers at the state and local level.
To ensure that REL scientifically based work meets the IES standards for research and evaluation, all REL study plans and final reports are required to pass a rigorous external peer review process established under NCEE.
The RELs submit projects on a continuing basis throughout the year on a variety of topics. IES invites you to look over the project descriptions to get a sense of the work underway in your region or other regions.
