Strengthening the Research Base that Informs STEM Workforce and Curriculum Improvement Efforts

Project Status: Current
Focus Area: Teacher Effectiveness
Timeline: 2014–16
Principal Investigator: Heather Hill

In recent years, the U.S. government has funded dozens of cluster-randomized trials that seek to evaluate the impact of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) curriculum materials and teacher professional development on student outcomes. This project synthesizes evidence from these studies, along with evidence from prior causal studies, in an effort to identify the characteristics of effective pre-K-12 programs.
