Papers submitted for the Decision Education Research Scholarship are meant to contribute to and enhance the field of Decision Education. Research paper submissions should be an analytical literature review focusing on a topic related to the four K–12 Learning Domains of Decision Education: 1) Recognizing and Resisting Cognitive Biases, 2) Valuing and Applying Rationality, 3) Thinking Probabilistically, and 4) Structuring Decisions.
Please see our list of sample topics below. Applicants are welcome to explore other subjects closely related to the learning domains. We do, however, strongly urge applicants interested in alternative topics to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org before writing their papers to ensure their topic aligns with the paper requirements.
Papers should include a review of research outlining major findings on the topic area and demonstrate clear and explicit relevance to Decision Education. They should also address implications for student learning and outcomes and provide suggestions for future research.
