A Methodological Note on Contextual Effects Studies in Education.
Anderson, Barry D.
This paper suggests four sources of inconclusive results in studies of school effects: Poor definitions of school context, poor sampling techniques, lack of attention to techniques of partitioning variance, and a lack of awareness of the effects of changing units of analysis on the size of statistical associations. Each problem is briefly described, and strategies for surmounting it are outlined. (Author)
