Case Study


With environmental statistics becoming more visible in the news, it has become more politicized, which makes it harder for the public to both understand and interpret all the different results that are being published. NISS provided a multi-disciplinary team that would act as a non-biased, third party analyzing the data to help the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency with its complex datasets and models.

Research Project

The Internet is rapidly becoming the main way people read and process information. The Internet requires additional reading, comprehension skills, beyond those needed for printed text. One dilemma is how do students discern what information is correct and what is incorrect? NISS participated in a $2.8 million research project with the University of Connecticut, the Pennsylvania State University and the University of Rhode Island funded by the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) of the US Department of Education to study just this subject.
