Logo for Guiding Principles for Mathematics and Science Education Research
A June 21, 2000, NSF report on a workshop of science and math education researchers. The purpose of this report is to present a brief review of research methodsemployed in recent studies and to propose, for discussion purposes, anumber of guiding principles for designing research studies and evaluatingresearch proposals in the area of mathematics and science education. The guiding principles presented here are intended tohelp provide a common basis for reviewing many research proposals.

We have a rubric for evaluating stages for research project proposals by Master
of Arts in Teaching Science candidates: I was concerned
that student researchers could get points for each item on the rubric, and yet
have a POOR proposal. This paper clarified the problem - and was helpful to
student researchers who struggle to allign some problem with a research question
or hypothesis and a method or design expected to lead to useful outcomes for
science education research.
