IES Announces the Establishment of Three Research Networks to Address Instructional and Learning Loss During the COVID-19 Pandemic

The National Center for Education Research (NCER) has awarded grants to establish the following three research networks:  

  1. The Leveraging Evidence to Accelerate Recovery Nationwide Network (LEARN Network). This network will support adaptation and scaling of evidence-based products that have the potential to accelerate learning for K-12 students affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

  1. The Prekindergarten Through Grade 12 Recovery Research Network. This network will work directly with state and local education agencies on their recovery efforts, providing evidence to help assess, improve, and select potential K-12 recovery activities. 

  1. The Community College Recovery Research Network. This network will collaborate with community college systems to provide evidence-based recovery activities that address the declines in postsecondary enrollment and academic progress that occurred during the COVID-19 pandemic.
