Design of A Survey for Determining Training and Personnel Requirements for Educational Research, Development, Dissemination and Evaluation. Vol. 1, Main Report. Final Report.
Hood, Paul D.; Chorness, Maury
This study presents a design for a biennial survey which would provide a nation-wide, in-depth sampling of supply and demand for educational research, development, diffusion, and evaluation personnel. An extensive preliminary study and analysis led to recommendations for a more modest initial survey focusing on the demand for three priority populations: a) the core of federally funded RDD&E performers, b) the RDD&E activities in local education agencies, and c) federal monitors and other federal professionals and paraprofessionals engaged in educational RDD&E. The survey is designed to generate projections on the basis of program funding information and will use a mail survey augmented by interviews. The questions included in the draft questionnaire and the recommended analysis are fully detailed. Discussion of sample selection, instrumentation and the creation and use of an educational RDD&E data bank are included. Appendixes provide a literature survey, background information on manpower resources and requirements, the capabilities of existing data processing systems, and survey cost support information.
