The Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness (SREE) was established to support rigorous research in education by increasing the field's capacity to design and conduct rigorous investigations, creating a community of rigorous education researchers, and promoting the understanding and use of evidence to improve education decisions and outcomes. IES has supported SREE via two unsolicited grants in the past (in 2005 and in 2008). SREE has made excellent progress as a professional organization, with almost 400 members, a peer reviewed journal (the Journal of Research on Educational Effectiveness), and a history of holding well-attended conferences. This grant will support core operations for SREE, much of which involve conference planning and logistics, while it moves toward self sufficiency.
