Planning New Development Efforts: Recommended Procedures.
The Michigan-Ohio Regional Educational Laboratory uses one of its own research projects as a model to outline recommended procedures in the planning of research efforts. The model used is an inservice teacher education program where three distinct phases operate in an overlapping manner as the program progresses. In the first phase, the problem is identified, data are gathered, and a prototype model is designed and carried out. At this juncture, an evaluation and redesign stage is inserted. Finally a field test of the model is made that is evaluated, redesigned, and again field tested. A final evaluation is made before a complete field test is conducted and this completes the cycle of development. Concurrent, sequential development of the phases in this program eliminates lags. If this program were to continue, suggestions are made that would modify the cycle of development to maintain continuous growth and interest. The aspects of planning that should receive greatest attention, including staffing, coordination of time-tables for planning, and evaluation criteria, are reviewed in some detail. (LN)
