The US Department of Education’s independent and nonpartisan Institute for Science Education (IES) is celebrating its 20th anniversary.

IES looks to Future Campaign Focused on “To make progress. Nothing. Eiusmod.”

Stress, Nov 3 /PRNewswire/ — Today marks 20 years for the Institute of Education Sciences (IES), the US Department of Education’s independent and nonpartisan statistical, research and evaluation arm. Since 2002, the educational organization has transformed science through innovative products and set the standard for collecting, researching and evaluating evidence.

Over the past 20 years, IES has produced documents that have explored and answered fundamental questions about learning and education. And IES is now responding by investing in overcoming the educational challenges posed by COVID-19 $100 million about the American policy on research, the translation of knowledge into action, and the acceleration of learning.

“While IES has experienced many successes over the last 20 years,” he said Mark Schneiderdirector of the Institute of Educational Sciences, “today we celebrate the future. We are funding our experts and researchers to accelerate learning and continuously establish new rigor in science education. We are internally modernizing our technology, paying attention to the needs of our users, and moving towards ambitious goals around diversity, equity and inclusion . We invite you to join us on our journey to modern IES.”

IES houses four centers united under one umbrella: the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), the National Center for Education Research (NCER), the National Center for Special Research (NCSER), and the National Center for Education Evaluation and Regional Assistance (NCEE).

Together, the work centers on the development of evidence-based policies and practices. The work of NCES provides the most accurate conditions in our school systems. NCER and NCSER work with researchers to develop and test solutions to the most pressing problems in education. NCEE takes research a step further through large-scale efficacy trials and direct support to educators and policymakers. Through this process, the nation’s educational system encourages IES.

IES 20th* The anniversary campaign runs through February with a focus on the future of IES as well as notable IES events that are included.
