The Center for Educational Technologies® has extensive experience with program and product evaluation. For instance, our team of educational researchers evaluated the NASA Explorer Schools program, which is the space agency's largest educational intervention. The final evaluation report was recognized with a 2008 outstanding publications award by the American Education Research Association.

The center is also home of the NASA-sponsored Classroom of the Future, which coordinates an online product review service for NASA and gives product developers assistance in their design. The process aims to improve the final product.
