Download as PDF jspears on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES 33928 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 136 / Tuesday, July 16, 2019 / Notices soliciting comments on the proposed information collection request (ICR) that is described below. The Department of Education is especially interested in public comment addressing the following issues: (1) Is this collection necessary to the proper functions of the Department; (2) will this information be processed and used in a timely manner; (3) is the estimate of burden accurate; (4) how might the Department enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (5) how might the Department minimize the burden of this collection on the respondents, including through the use of information technology. Please note that written comments received in response to this notice will be considered public records. Title of Collection: IES Research Training Program Surveys. OMB Control Number: 1850–0873. Type of Review: An extension of an existing information collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Individuals or Households. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 580. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 197. Abstract: The surveys are for participants in the fellowship research training programs and the nonfellowship research training programs funded by Institute of Education Sciences (IES). IES’s fellowship programs include predoctoral training under the National Center for Education Research (NCER) and postdoctoral training under NCER and the National Center for Special Education Research (NCSER). These programs provide universities support to provide training in education research and special education research to graduate students (predoctoral program) and postdoctoral fellows. IES also supports nonfellowship research training through its current programs, e.g., NCER’s Methods Research Training program and NCER’s Undergraduate Pathways program. IES would like to collect satisfaction information from the participants in these programs and other similar training programs funded through NCER or NCSER grant programs. The results of the surveys will be used both to improve the training programs as well as to provide information on the programs to the participants, policymakers, practitioners, and the general public. All information released to the public will be in aggregate so that no one program or training group can be distinguished. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:33 Jul 15, 2019 Jkt 247001 Dated: July 11, 2019.
