An Analytical Review of Longitudinal and Related Studies as They Apply to the Educational Process. Towards Synthesis, Volume II.
Rose, Clare; And Others
This document is the second volume in a 5-part series that reports the results of a project undertaken to critically review and analyze major longitudinal studies of child and student development. These studies were conducted to discover the variables, techniques, methodologies, and problems pertinent to evaluate studies of the effects of schools and colleges on the growth and development of children and young adults. It was anticipated that study results would provide guidelines for the future research needed to enhance educational program planning, implementation, and evaluation. This volume contains the dynamics of the development of the abstracting process underlying the study, the elements of the process, the typology of the variables included in the research, an overview of major issues suggested by the research reviewed as well as by the review process, and the abstracts themselves. The document also provides a critical appraisal of each study's major issues and objectives and assesses their relevance to educational research. Related documents are EA 005 321 and EA 005 323-325.
