Abstract

This report, prepared for the National Science Foundation, describes the process we used to develop a tool that predicts a project's outcomes from its proposal. We defined proposal characteristics and outcome extents for 36 completed educational software development awards. We used multiple regression analysis to specify and fit a predictive model, and cross-validation to assess the predictive ability. Finally we developed a software tool that allows program officers to apply this model to help evaluate new proposals.
