Common Guidelines for Education Research and Development

A publication titled Common Guidelines for Education Research and Development has just been released by the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Department of Education. It provides a framework for producing and sharing knowledge and evidence resources, so that innovations that work can be more quickly and widely used in classrooms around the country.

Here is a set of Frequently Asked Questions about the Guidelines.
