The Institute of Education Sciences and the National Science Foundation have formally released common guidelines for education research and development.

The guidelines, first previewed back in May, are intended to guide research-investment decisions at the U.S. Department of Education's main research agency and NSF research in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education. They are also supposed to clarify the evidence expected for different types of research proposals from those applying for grants from the agencies.

The guidelines identify six types of research that make up an ongoing cycle of building evidence in education, from foundational and early-stage or exploratory research, through design, efficacy, effectiveness, and scale-up research.
