Suydam, Marilyn N.; Weaver, J. Fred
This bulletin serves as a guide to those persons interested in conducting or implementing educational research. Research is described as being "controlled inquiry", either in the form of an experiment or a survey. Descriptions are given of the procedures and complications associated with planning and initiating experimental research. A suggested routine would involve: (1) identification of the variables, (2) control of the relevant variables, (3) selection of an appropriate measuring instrument, (4) verification of the sample appropriateness, (5) a pilot study (if possible), and (6) dissemination of the findings.
