Education Research and Methods

IES seeks to improve the quality of education for all students—prekindergarten through postsecondary and adult education—by supporting education research and the development of tools that education scientists need to conduct rigorous, applied research. Such research aims to advance our understanding of and practices for teaching, learning, and organizing education systems, and it helps to identify what works, what doesn't, and why. The goal is to improve education programs and, hence, outcomes for all learners, particularly those at a heightened risk of failure.
