A Critique of Research Studies in Music Education. Final Report.
Colwell, Richard J.
This report is a compilation of critiques of research studies in music education. The project was designed to collect objective evaluations of the results of research, to show how these results can be applied in the classroom to contribute to the improvement of music teaching and learning, and to facilitate dissemination of this information. Identification is made of those research studies in music education which are most useful in terms of quality of research, relevance to past and future research, and pertinency to the music teaching situation. Experts within and outside of the field of music education provide critical reviews of such research, a) showing the strengths and weaknesses of the study through analysis, interpretation, and evaluation; b) indicating the implications for other researchers, the need for replication in same and altered situations, the needs for changes in design and/or treatment of data; and c) where appropriate offering suggestions for simplifying the design so the study might be replicated in the classroom as action research.
