The University of Minnesota's Interdisciplinary Training in Education Research (MITER) Program is designed to develop education researchers whose ability to apply experimental methodology and cognitive sciences to practical educational issues will place them at the forefront of research and academic endeavors worldwide. Research themes within the program focus on experimental research methodology (standards-based assessment, continuous monitoring of student progress, experimental and quasi-experimental design with an emphasis on experimental designs, and longitudinal studies) and cognitive science as applied to educational issues (including training in theories and data-gathering methods in education-related fields of cognition such as cognitive neuroscience, psycholinguistics, psychology of higher-order thinking and learning).
