Two weeks ago, the IES held its annual meeting for PIs. Upon reviewing the priorities of the Standards for Excellence in Education Research (SEER), the Director of the IES announced ongoing work to add a ninth principle related to equity in education. The IES will also soon publish a guide for researchers in education that encourages use of Bayesian estimates. Projects funded through IES will see increased monitoring for adherence to SEER principles, and researchers are encouraged to spend more time analyzing data. For more information about the ongoing development of SEER, read the IES Director’s recent blog post.
