Getting to Know the EFF Standard Learn Through Research

The EFF Standard Learn Through Research defines one of 16 content areas that make up the EFF Content Framework. Go to Standards for a complete list of the standards. The definition of the Learn Through Research Standard is:

In order to fulfill responsibilities as parents/family members, citizens/community members and workers, adults need to be able to:

  • Pose a question to be answered or make a prediction about objects or events.
  • Use multiple lines of inquiry to collect information.
  • Organize, evaluate, analyze findings.
  • Interpret and communicate findings.

This definition was developed as part of an intensive multi-year research and development process that included input from teachers throughout the U.S. as well as content area specialists. More information about the history of this development process can be found in the EFF Assessment Resource Collection.
