Strategies for Knowledge Use and School Improvement: A Summary. Linking R&D with Schools.
Louis, Karen Seashore; And Others
Based on two papers presented at the American Educational Research Association meeting in 1981, this report provides an overview and major outcomes of a three-year study of the Research and Development Utilization (RDU) program. The RDU program tested and assessed a comprehensive model for assisting schools to use results of educational research and development in local school improvement efforts. The first paper presents the outcomes of the RDU program at the school level, while the second presents an analysis of the way in which product characteristics, technical assistance, the internal problem-solving process, and school and pupil characteristics predict the level of success of the program. (This report is a summary of Volume 2 of the Final Report.) (Author/MLF)
