Multivariate Analysis of Schools and Educational Policy.
Kiesling, Herbert J.
This report describes a multivariate analysis technique that approaches the problems of educational production function analysis by (1) using comparable measures of output across large experiments, (2) accounting systematically for differences in socioeconomic background, and (3) treating the school as a complete system in which different experiments can be related to each other. Multivariate analysis provides (1) a useful perspective for organizing educational research, (2) an accurate information source for describing American education, and (3) a framework for planning future research. Included in this paper are a review and an annotated listing of various multivariate studies, some implications of multivariate analysis for future research, and a list of 31 references. (Author/LLR)
