Dear REESE/REAL Investigator,
The Center for Advancing Research and Communication (ARC) in STEM is funded by NSF to conduct research and provide a variety of services in support of the REESE/REAL program. To help promote awareness of the program and its contributions to STEM learning, ARC makes available online descriptions of the work undertaken by the projects currently supported through the REESE/REAL program. To ensure consistency in the project descriptions, we request that you use the following online structured abstract form. Additional details about the information being requested in the abstract form are available in the Rigor Standards Guidelines that ARC has developed with NSF for assessing the scientific rigor of funded research.
Your participation is entirely voluntary but will be invaluable in helping us provide the most complete information possible on the work of the REESE/REAL community. Note that only select answers with be used for the online summary, which you will have the opportunity to review and edit before it is posted. You also will be able to add or delete information at will once the summary is online. All other responses will be kept strictly confidential and only aggregate results will be reported to NSF. A copy of your responses will be emailed to you when you submit the form. I would be pleased to answer any questions you might have about this project (firstname.lastname@example.org). Thank you very much for your assistance.
