Broad View of CAUSE Projects: Survey of Project Directors and Analyses of Proposals.
Presented are analyses of data gathered from the evaluation of the National Science Foundation's Comprehensive Assistance to Undergraduate Science Education (CAUSE) program projects funded between 1976 and 1978. Broad focus techniques were used, which include both a survey of 201 CAUSE project directors and the content analysis of 273 funded CAUSE proposals. The content analysis of CAUSE proposals provides an overview of the way projects were described before they were implemented; the survey of CAUSE directors portrays the projects as seen by project directors either during implementation or after project completion. Numerous tables list directors' responses to individual items on the survey questionnaire. (CS)
