Some Aspects of Educational Research and Development in the United States--Report for the OECD Review. Final Report.
Lindeman, John; And Others
This project used interviews, questionnaires, and bibliographic research to investigate the role and attitudes of sponsors, performers, and users of educational research and development. The report is in five chapters. Chapters 1 and 2 present findings on sponsors; chapter 3 reports on performers; chapter 4 describes users; and chapter 5 presents conclusions reached on the basis of the preceding four chapters. The report indicates that educational research and development 1) is sponsored primarily by the Federal government; 2) is sponsored by foundations as part of more general programs rarely identified as specifically educational R & D; 3) is shifting from project to programmatic, and from theoretical to applied; 4) has had less than satisfactory impact on the practices of the users in the eyes of sponsors and performers; and 5) has not achieved significant popularity and acceptance in the opinion of those for whom the work is intended, the users. The last half of the report consists of appendixes containing materials used in the study--questionnaires and interview schedules--and data tables. (RT)
