  • IES Grant Competition

    • IES has just announced in the Federal Registry a research competition for research teams to propose research with one of the five digital platforms including E-TRIALS. The E-TRIALS team will help researchers think about what to propose to IES. IES intends to give grants of $400,000/team to 10 different teams. Click here to learn more.

  • MathNet Project

    • E-TRIALS is partnering with Doug Jaffe and Laurence Holt on the MathNet project to fund research on our Image Data Set. We have over 3 million images uploaded by students whose teachers used ASSISTments for their assignments. Many images have been scored. They will fund up to three such grants and expect awards to be between $40,000 - $120,000. Click here to learn more.

How E-TRIALS works

"Quite simply, E-TRIALS is a dream come true for researchers interested in student learning."

Professor Virginia Clinton, University of North Dakota
