Research at ETS: Projects and Publications.
Loye, David, Ed.
This booklet surveys all the research studies (approx. 205), undertaken at ETS from July 1968 through June 1969. It offers research results to interested, nonresearch professional readers, and supplements more formal reports for professionals interested in research processes as well. Four major themes in the ETS research program are emphasized: (1) the assessing of human beings as individuals, rather than as "averages"; (2) assessing educational processes in terms of systems, rather than concentrating solely on separate processes; (3) a concentration upon research aimed at gaining an understanding of how children learn during their earliest years; and (4) initiating and carrying out research in a real world with all its complexities. The contents are grouped into four categories: Psychological Research; Educational Applications; Theories, Methods, and Systems Research; and Publications and Speeches of ETS Staff members. (CK)
