Educational Research: European Survey 1970. Volume I; United Kingdom, Sweden.
Council of Europe, Strasbourg (France). Documentation Center for Education in Europe.
Under the guidance of the Council of Europe's ad hoc Committee for Educational Research, a second survey of the educational research policy, principal educational research organizations, and major educational research projects of member countries has been completed. To facilitate comparison with the 1968 survey, a similar questionnaire was used. This volume is devoted to educational research in the United Kingdom and in Sweden. A review of the educational research policy in each of these countries describes the agencies which promote educational research, their financial status, and the methods they use for decision making and information dissemination. Organizations which conduct educational research are listed along with their address, chairman, a historical background, and a report of their current status and program. A directory of current research projects for each country gives the title of the project, the principal researcher, sponsoring organization, and purpose. The directory of Swedish projects also lists their procedures, results, and references. Some of the research topics are: permanence of learning of pupils at school-leaving age, teaching chemistry in universities, tutorial schools, comparative analyses of goals and instructional processes in school systems, reading disabilities, computer-assisted learning systems, and programed instruction.
