The advent of high stakes state testing in K-12 education and The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, with its focus on "scientifically-based research" (SBR), has opened new challenges for both undergraduate and graduate preparation programs in education. This address will report on how we are currently preparing our undergraduate and graduate students in educational research methods and then offer specific recommendations that would allow our graduates to better understand and use the information generated by these new public policies.
