On August 13, 2013, the Department of Education (the Department) published final regulations in the Federal Register to amend the Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR). On October 22, 2014, the Department published a notice of proposed rulemaking to make additional amendments to EDGAR. In this document, the Department amends 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 amends the definition of ``large sample'' in our regulation. We also make technical edits to our regulations to improve the consistency and clarity of the regulations. Finally, we redesignate a section of our regulations and include in that redesignated section an additional provision that allows the Secretary to give special consideration to projects supported by evidence of promise.
