Management and Generalizability.
Trismen, Donald A.
Although management of a large-scale research study is the responsibility of the team of investigators, control of the educational treatment is often shared with teachers and administrators in participating schools. This results in continuous modification of objectives and procedures which, in the traditional view, is poor scientific practice and prevents generalizability. To compensate for the lack of control, (1) a broad range of data from very large populations should be collected to allow analysis of all major variables, and (2) an educational information system should be created to provide the information necessary to evaluate replications of treatments across schools. This approach differs from a traditional research and evaluation study in determining under what conditions a particular effect occurred rather than trying to specify and enforce a particular set of conditions.
