Center for Instructional Research and Curriculum Evaluation

 College of Education
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign 

The Center for Instructional Research and Curriculum Evaluation at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign was created in 1964. Staffed minimally as a budget line research unit, for its contracts, CIRCE draws together outstanding researchers within the college and from around the world. CIRCE' s  programmatic focus (educational evaluation) is shared with over a hundred centers at universities, school districts, government centers, and for-profit research corporations, yet, despite its size, it shares a worldwide reputation for high quality work, integrity, and innovative design. CIRCE is currently part of the Bureau of Educational Research of the College of Education, University of Illinois.
