Summer Conference Season
Many IES-funded researchers have been sharing the findings of their studies at academic conferences this past month. Want to learn more? Lists of presentations describing IES-funded research at the Society for Text & Discourse and Society for the Scientific Study of Reading annual meetings are available on our conferences page.
A Busy Month for IES Research in the News
Have you visited our IES Research in the News page lately? It’s a great way to learn more about IES-funded research. Not only can you read more about the new awards that have been recently made, you can learn about findings from recent studies. We do our best to keep up, but if we’re missing something, send us a note at IESResearch@ed.gov.
