Status and Prospects of Educational Research in Quebec. Volumes I and II.
Pedersen, Eigil D.; And Others
These two volumes contain a complete report on an inventory of the state of educational research in Quebec, as surveyed in 1968-1969. Four different populations--deans, professors of education, graduate students in education, and educational researchers other than faculties of education--were studied, using a particular instrument designed for the purpose. All instruments were produced in English and French, and the first of three questionnaires were tested in both languages. Volume I contains two chapters: Chapter I deals with data obtained from the deans; Chapter II concerns data obtained from members of faculties of education. Volume II contains three chapters: Chapter III analyzes responses from students in the field of education, and Chapter IV deals with data from researchers in organizations other than the faculties of education; Chapter V compares and contrasts the information obtained from all categories of respondents, and attempts to draw conclusions. Volume I contains 16 appendices and 104 tables, and Volume II contains 31 appendices and 112 tables. In addition, there are 48 recommendations, which concern background, activities, interaction, factors related to the undertaking of research, kinds of research being undertaken, meeting needs and offering incentives, training of researchers, and job opportunities.
