RESEARCH IN RETROSPECT--ADMINISTRATIVE MEMORANDA OF THE DENVER-STANFORD RESEARCH PROJECT.
HAYMAN, JOHN L., JR.; JOHNSON, JAMES T., JR.
MEMORANDUMS ARE PROVIDED ON THE ADMINISTRATIVE ASPECTS OF THE JOINT PROJECT OF THE DENVER PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND STANFORD UNIVERSITY, TITLED "FOUR YEARS OF RESEARCH ON THE CONTEXT OF INSTRUCTIONAL TELEVISION." THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROJECT WAS TO LEARN HOW INSTRUCTIONAL TELEVISION COULD BEST FIT INTO THE TOTAL TEACHING SITUATION, NOT TO DETERMINE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF EDUCATIONAL TV. THE TEACHING FIELD SELECTED FOR EXPERIMENTATION WAS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL SPANISH FOR FIFTH AND SIXTH GRADERS. A FINAL REPORT PRESENTED THE GENERAL FINDINGS OF THE OVERALL PROJECT. THE PRESENT REPORT WAS PREPARED NOT TO DUPLICATE AND SUMMARIZE THE FINAL DOCUMENT BUT TO PROVIDE SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS AND OTHER RESPONSIBLE GROUPS WITH A COMPREHENSIVE TEXT ON--(1) HOW THE PROJECT WAS PLANNED AND INSTITUTED, (2) HOW IT ACTUALLY OPERATED, (3) WHAT PROBLEMS WERE ENCOUNTERED AND HOW THEY WERE OVERCOME, (4) WHAT EFFECT IT HAD ON THE TEACHING CORPS, PRINCIPALS, AND PARENTS, AND (5) WHAT THE LONG-TERM IMPLICATIONS ARE. ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEDURES ARE THUS REPORTED THAT WOULD NOT NORMALLY BE INCLUDED ELSEWHERE. THE "WHY" AND "WITH WHAT RESULTS" ARE COVERED EXTENSIVELY IN MORE TECHNICAL REPORTS WHICH CAN BE OBTAINED FROM EITHER THE U.S. OFFICE OF EDUCATION OR THE INSTITUTE FOR COMMUNICATION RESEARCH AT STANFORD UNIVERSITY.
