Prospectives in Educational Research. Research and Information Report Number 5.
Comparison is made between the techniques of research used in the physical sciences and those used in educational research, and the relative weakness of the reproducibility of educational research findings is noted. It is pointed out that while monitoring and feedback are essential in any research endeavor, they present difficulty in educational research because, by their very nature, they disrupt and degrade the processes of teaching and learning. An examination of Kline's theories on technoextension factors in relation to the extension of human capacity in the area of instructional capability leads to the suggestion that the computer can be utilized in these two necessary phases of educational research.
