Some Problems Associated with Nationwide Evaluation and the Formulation of Educational Policy.
Bickner, Robert E.; Mood, Alexander
This speech highlights some of the problems of translating research findings, regardless of the research methodology used, into educational policy at the national level. The author discusses the problems of (1) the division of responsibility for education among Federal, State, and local governments; (2) the lack of consensus about educational objectives; (3) the policymakers' lack of faith in new research findings; and (4) the rapid pace of change in the world today. He suggests some ways for alleviating these problems. (JF)
