The Gathering and Use of Data.
Mauch, James E.; And Others
Fundamental problems in the collection and use of data, in particular the need to develop and use criteria for data, are discussed. Specific examples of the use and misuse of data related to teachers and children in the public schools are presented. Two methods of data collection--manifest techniques and formal response instruments--are evaluated in terms of advantages and disadvantages, as well as reliability and validity. Additional consideration is given to criteria for pre-collection data phases, and test selection (ability and achievement tests). (AE)
