NRS Myth Busters Evaluation Research Guide
The myth Busters' Evaluation Research Guide provides a detailed model and approach to assist state and local adult education programs to use their NRS data to "bust" common myths and to conduct research related to adult education students, teachers, or programs. The guide presents basic concepts of evaluation research, including developing research questions, research design, data analysis and reporting. This guide is the twelfth in a series of guides designed to assist states with implementing National Reporting System (NRS) requirements, improve data quality and use NRS data to promote program improvement and supports national training conducted in June and July 2013.
