Undergraduate research is important for preparing the next generation of scholars in family and consumer sciences (FCS). The Research Resource Guide (RRG) was developed in response to that need; it provides comprehensive information on the research process for faculty to incorporate into undergraduate courses. The RRG comprises three levels: (a) research from an FCS perspective, (b) research processes, and (c) research products. The purpose of this article is to describe the development of and formative evaluation for the RRG. The formative evaluation, conducted with four expert reviewers, showed that the RRG was accurate, appropriate, well organized, and useful. Reviewers recommended including content on ethics, writing samples, and additional learning activities. Further work on the RRG is needed to determine both usability with faculty and appropriateness of content for undergraduate students.
