Systems Analysis Applications in Educational Research.
Alkin, Marvin C.; Skager, Rodney W.
There are basically four dimensions to a systems analysis that we find in current educational research: (1) Collecting information, (2) analyzing input-output relationships, (3) deriving models built upon these relationships to evaluate alternatives and to derive feasible solutions, and (4) attempting to derive the best solution consistent with the constraints. Three studies presently under way may help to provide insights into the range of educational research problems which might be beneficially examined from the systems analytic viewpoint. The first study deals with collecting information for building an evaluation system for elementary schools. The second is an attempt to develop a series of regression models for simulating the characteristics of secondary schools. The last deals with optimization of salary schemes. (DE)
