Direct Grant Programs and Definitions That Apply to Department Regulations
On August 13, 2013, the Department of Education (the Department) published a notice of final regulations in the Federal Register to amend our Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR). In this document, the Department proposes to further amend EDGAR to add a definition of ``What Works Clearinghouse Evidence Standards'' (WWC Evidence Standards) in our regulations to standardize references to this term. In addition, the Department proposes to amend the definition of ``large sample'' in our regulation. We also propose technical edits to our regulations to improve the consistency and clarity of the regulations. Finally, we propose to redesignate our regulations and to include in that redesignated section an additional provision that would allow the Secretary to give special consideration to projects supported by evidence of promise.
