|Title:||NCER/NCSER Research Training Program Support Contract|
|Principal Investigator:||Gage, Nicholas||Awardee:||WestEd|
|Program:||Unsolicited and Other Awards [Program Details]|
|Award Period:||12 months (06/16/2022 – 06/15/2023)||Award Amount:||$261,582|

Through this contract, WestEd will (1) develop theoretical models for the various training program types and IES training broadly, (2) establish metrics aligned with the theoretical model, and (3) identify data that can be used to measure progress on each metric.
Since 2004, IES has supported education research training programs through grants funded by the National Center for Education Research (NCER) and the National Center for Special Education Research (NCSER) with the broad purpose of preparing individuals to conduct rigorous and relevant education research that advances knowledge within the field and addresses issues important to education policymakers and practitioners. Over the past decades, NCER and NCSER have developed a number of programs that have supported training for undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, early career and established researchers.
The theoretical models and metrics developed in this contract will help NCER and NCSER assess the success and impacts of the training programs and better plan for changes and additions to the programs in future competitions.
