Online Tool for Evaluating Educational Policy

Posted on March 26, 2004

NEW ONLINE “PRIMER” HELPS POLICYMAKERS EVALUATE EDUCATION RESEARCH

The Education Commission of the States (ECS) and Mid-continent Research for Education and Learning (McREL) have launched a new online tool to help policymakers, education leaders, reporters and others better understand and evaluate education research. The interactive, online document is a first-of-its kind effort. The primer helps policymakers and other interested individuals answer three questions: (1) What does the research say? (2) Is the research trustworthy? (3) How can the research be used to guide policy? It was written by McREL Principal Researcher Patricia Lauer and funded through grants from the U.S. Department of Education.
