Data Archive for Interdisciplinary Research on Learning
Also known as DAIRL, the data archive was designed to support researchers in applying a multidisciplinary, practical, and equity-centered lens in their work.
DAIRL provides an infrastructure for accessing and sharing datasets and written works related to student learning, students’ experience of school, and the structures that shape this experience. It includes quantitative and qualitative data and can be used for a host of scholarly activities, such as conducting novel secondary research, replicating existing findings, pilot testing ideas in support of a funding application, teaching courses, and mentoring students. DAIRL also features user resources and a series of working papers from SERN initiatives.
