2022 IES Learning Acceleration Challenges

IES has launched a series of learning acceleration challenges to spur new thinking about how to improve student performance. We encourage the participation of developers and program providers who are willing to systematically test the effectiveness of their interventions.

IES plans to announce two new prize competitions in early 2022. One will incentivize the development of innovations to advance science achievement in the middle grades and the other on mathematics achievement in the upper elementary grades for students with disabilities.
