SOME RECENT IDEAS IN RESEARCH METHODOLOGY.
RUNKEL, PHILIP J.
THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT A CONFERENCE ON "NEW DIRECTIONS IN RESEARCH ON EDUCATIONAL ADMINISTRATION." TWO SCHEMES OF RESEARCH METHODOLOGY WERE DISCUSSED. THE FIRST IDEA WAS "FACET DESIGN AND ANALYSIS" ORIGINATED BY LOUIS GUTTMAN. FACET DESIGN WAS DEFINED AS A WAY OF LAYING OUT A DOMAIN FOR RESEARCH, WHILE FACET ANALYSIS ENABLES ONE TO TEST THE VALIDITY OF THE ASSESSMENT OF THE ENTIRE DOMAIN. THE SECOND SCHEME WAS "THEORY OF DATA" BY CLYDE COOMBS. THIS DEALS WITH THE STAGES OF GATHERING DATA OUT OF OBSERVATIONS AND OF MAKING VARIABLES. THE PHASES DISCUSSED IN THE "THEORY OF DATA" WERE (1) SELECTING A DOMAIN OF INVESTIGATION, (2) RECORDING OBSERVATIONS, (3) CONVERTING OBSERVATIONS INTO DATA, (4) CLASSIFYING THE INDIVIDUALS OR OBJECTS (SCALING), AND (5) SEEKING RELATIONS AMONG VARIABLES. THESE SCHEMES WERE SUGGESTED TO BE OF USE AS TOOLS BY THOSE WHO WILL BE DEVELOPING NEW METHODS IN RESEARCH. (RS)
