IES Releases Biennial Report to Congress

The Institute of Education Sciences (IES) has released its Director’s Biennial Report to Congress Fiscal Years 2017–18.

Director Mark Schneider stated in the report that IES is an applied research agency. As such, investments in basic research will continue; however, the work of IES focuses on improving outcomes of learners throughout the life cycle with an emphasis on translating research for widespread use. IES is increasingly interested in moving from identifying what works to improving what happens.

This focus is evident across the work highlighted in this report and the efforts of IES to support educators, policymakers, and communities.
