Research in Economic Education: A Bibliography.
Dawson, George G.
Listed in this bibliography by broad grade level categories are 660 reports of research and evaluation in economics education. "'Research' is very broadly defined to include fact finding surveys, informal evaluations, attitude surveys, and graduate studies as well as formal and tightly controlled projects." Entries are mainly from the 1960's, but some go back to the 1920's. To compile the entries approximately 2,000 questionnaires were mailed in 1968 to all Councils and Centers for Economics Education in the U.S., all Developmental Economic Education Projects (DEEP), and departments of economics and education in 1,223 institutions of higher education. Additional sources were also consulted. A breakdown of entries indicates that 5% deal with economic education in the elementary school, 5% elementary and secondary, 42% secondary only, 34% college students, adult education, and teacher training, 2% college and secondary, 9% economics education in general, and the remaining 3% uncategorized. See SO 000 263 for the 1970 supplement to this bibliography. (DJB)
