An Analytical Review of Longitudinal and Related Studies as They Apply to the Educational Process. Supplement to the Analytical Review, Volume V.
Trent, James W.; Rose, Clare
This document is the fifth 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 evaluative 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 provides (1) a "users' guide" to the previous materials with focus on their relevance to the U. S. Office of Education's ongoing Longitudinal Study of Educational Effects and (2) an enumeration of the more practical technical details of the longitudinal studies examined, such as study design, response rates, cost, administration of the instrumentation (including the time sequence and setting), nonrespondent characteristics, obstacles encountered in carrying out the research, especially effective procedures followed, and availability of resultant data for future use by other researchers. The presentation concludes with an annotated classification of the instruments and measurements used in the studies. Related documents are EA 005 321-324. (Document may reproduce poorly.) (Author/DN)
