Who Is Doing What: An Empirical Comparison of N.I.E. and U.S.O.E. Funded Research and Development.
Hurt, Maure, Jr.; And Others
Using as a data base a sample of 1,939 projects dealing with research and development, a comparison was made to determine the qualitative differences in types of projects funded by the National Institute of Education (NIE) and the United States Office of Education (USOE) for children and youth. Variables of interest include type of research, target population, and performing organization. The variable having the greatest explanatory power was type of project, indicating that NIE differed from USOE in greater use of nonprofit organizations to conduct research and in greater emphasis on projects directed at children in general, rather than at special target populations. In part, the differences between NIE and USOE projects are due to legislative mandates, but the differences do exist, can be identified, can be quantified, and can be described in terms of project characteristics.
