Research For Students: The third issue of The Journal of High School Science Research, a new publication that showcases exemplary research of precollegiate science students, will be published this month. The semiannual journal publishes student research papers as well as abstracts of student research projects. The September issue, for example, featured a high school student's report on the experimental breeding of fruit flies. Inquiries about submissions, subscriptions, and advertising should be sent to Applied Educational Technology, P.O. Box 193, Tigerville, SC 29688. The editor is M.H. Farmer.

Grant Winner: In November, the U.S. Education Department announced that the University of California Los Angeles has been awarded $14.3 million to continue operating a federally sponsored research center on assessment, evaluation, and testing. The five-year award is by far the largest prize of the $125 million educational research center competition.
