Louis, Karen Seashore; And Others
These technical appendices are bound separately from the report "Strategies for Knowledge Use and School Improvement" which evaluates the National Institute of Education's Research and Development Utilization (RDU) program. Appendix A contains a preliminary report on the statistical quality of the quantitative data, focusing primarily on teacher data. Recommendations for analysis are made. Appendix B explains the scaling and standardization procedures utilized for each key variable in the study. Appendix C discusses the variations in the number of cases due to multiple data sources and the implications of this variation for analysis procedures. Appendix D contains copies of the instruments used in the study: the consolidated coding form, the teacher survey, and the principal survey. Appendix E lists the products adopted by schools in six RDU projects. Appendix F sets forth the criteria for judging the quality of problem solving in the RDU schools. (MLF)
