Web Research

  • Education Resources Information Center (ERIC)
    The Education Resources Information Center (ERIC) is an internet-based digital library of education research and information sponsored by the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) of the U.S. Department of Education. ERIC provides access to bibliographic records of journal and non-journal literature from 1966 to the present.
  • Institute of Education Sciences
    As the research arm of the U.S. Department of Education, IES provides rigorous and relevant evidence on which to ground education practice and policy and shares this information broadly. By identifying what works, what doesn't, and why, they aim to improve educational outcomes for all students, particularly those at risk of failure.
  • What Works Clearinghouse
    The What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) was established in 2002 as an initiative of the Institute for Education Sciences (IES) at the U.S. Department of Education. The WWC is administered by the National Center for Education Evaluation within IES. The WWC identifies studies that provide credible and reliable evidence of the effectiveness of a given practice, program, or policy (referred to as “interventions”), and disseminates summary information and reports on the WWC website. With over 700 publications available and more than 6,000 reviewed studies in the online searchable database, the WWC aims to inform researchers, educators, and policymakers as they work toward improving education for students.
