Evaluative Research and Capacity Building (EREC) The EREC program seeks proposals that offer unique approaches to evaluation practice in the generation of knowledge for the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education community and for broad policymaking within the research and education enterprise. Successful proposals may focus on one or more STEM education programs or projects in order to examine major issues in STEM education and/or may focus on the development of capacity within the education evaluation field. Research on Learning and Education (ROLE) The ROLE program seeks to capitalize on important developments across a wide range of fields related to human learning and to STEM education. It supports research across a continuum that includes (1) the biological basis of human learning; (2) behavioral, cognitive, affective and social
aspects of STEM learning; (3) STEM learning in formal and informal educational settings; (4) STEM Policy research; and (5) The diffusion of STEM innovations. The ROLE Program aims to advance the knowledge base within and across the intersections of these multidisciplinary areas. It encourages projects that reconcile and integrate basic research and educational practice, and generate hypotheses from one disciplinary area that can be tested and refined in another.
