ISEE R&D Projects

r&d cycle of development

ISEE R&D contributes to the advancement of ISEE’s core mission by conducting educational research and evaluation to inform program implementation and practice.

Key activities include:  

  • Development, refinement and implementation of assessment instruments and methods
  • Analysis and interpretation of data from ISEE-supported programs to show evidence-based outcomes
  • Producing and circulating written reports and guidelines that support others interested in using tools and methods developed by the ISEE R&D team.
  • Collecting and communicating findings to both the ISEE community and other audiences nationwide;
  • Providing context for disseminated findings and suggesting implications for practice
  • Producing and submitting manuscripts for peer-review.

ISEE R&D activities also serve as professional development for core ISEE staff members and collaborators who benefit as they learn about different theories of human development and learning, assessment paradigms, and how to use data as evidence of educational outcomes.
