Work In Progress

REL West conducts applied research studies that address high-priority education questions identified through our partnerships, and build the capacity of individuals and organizations to develop, support, execute, and make use of rigorous applied research. After a proposal completes a rigorous external review process, the study is posted as a work in progress.
