Organization and Function in Large City Research Bureaus.
Dziuban, Charles D.; Armstrong, John H.
This study was designed to identify the major organizational and functional dimensions of large city public school research bureaus. Several (14) organizational variables were collected in addition to an indication of what functions were performed. Directors were asked to rank eleven general functions in priority and to provide charts of the organizational structure of their bureaus. Principal components analysis yielded five organizational and five functional dimensions. At least seventy percent of the directors reported that their bureaus performed eleven specified functions ranging from test construction to enrollment studies. Structural analysis showed the number of organizational levels in the bureaus to range from eight to one. In general, the directors assigned highest priorities to instructional and administrative research and the lowest to writing proposals and negotiating with funding agencies. (Author)
