Chemical Education Research
Chemical Education research is typically carried out in situ using human subjects from secondary and post-secondary schools.

These data can then be analyzed using various statistical methods. Qualitative methods include interviews, observations, journaling, and other methods common to social science research.
Research is usually presented in peer-reviewed education journals and through various educational conferences, including the chemical education specific, Biennial Conference on Chemical Education  .
