Experimental and Developmental Research Including Evaluation. Occasional Papers No. 7.
Adams, R. S.; And Others
In preparation for the Seventh Regional Consultation Meeting on the Asian Programme of Educational Innovation for Development (APEID) in June 1981, some of the eminent educators in Asia and the Pacific were invited by the Asian Centre of Educational Innovation for Development (ACEID) to present their thoughts on APEID. This document contains papers by R.S. Adams, Yung Dug Lee, S.K. Mitra, and Tan Sri Dato Haji Murad bin Mohammed Noor on the topic "Experimental and Developmental Research Including Evaluation." In his paper, Adams differentiates among five innovation phases (origination, specification, operation, implementation, and consolidation) and suggests ways that experimental and developmental research can be carried out in each. Lee offers a definition of experimental and developmental research and suggests what needs to be done in connection with future APEID activities. Mitra provides definitions of experimental and developmental research and evaluation and emphasizes that experimental research should be linked to developmental research and evaluation. Finally, Noor argues for the need for a systematic evaluation of education. (LC)
