IRIS Use Report
This report specifically addresses one aspect of the IRIS Center’s work: the use of the center’s website by faculty working to prepare new teachers. Data collection efforts sought to determine the center’s current use—how many colleges and universities offering state-approved special education personnel preparation programs use IRIS resources in their coursework. Assessment of use is important for evaluation purposes and strategic planning.
The IRIS Newsletter
Looking for updates on all things IRIS? Our periodic newsletter The IRIS Standard is a great place to start. New resource development, partnerships and collaborations with our fellow OSEP-funded centers, IRIS fast facts, and more, it’s all right here.
To fulfill one of our obligations, and to report our most recent happenings, the IRIS Center produces quarterly reports to share with IRIS users and the U.S. Department of Education. These quarterly reports detail resource production, scaling-up activities, additions and refinements to the IRIS website, presentation and conference participation, Web traffic data, and much more.
