An Application of the Programmatic Organization Model to Applied Research.
Haring, Norris G.; Krug, David A.
Presented is a programatic organization model which is applied to research needs in special education. Major advantages of the model are given to be that of providing for several research activities which focus on one common problem, reducing the duplication of research effort, providing greater efficiency in use of research personnel and resources, allowing for the use of common measurement units and data analysis to facilitate the comparison of data from all the research activities, and being able to conduct a number of projects concurrently. It is thought that the utilization of the model would yield information on a common research problem in less time than it would take to conduct a series of individual research projects. Application of the model would involve the setting of general and specific objectives, a project coordinator, several research teams each working on specific but related studies, field testing in schools and institutions, and dissemination of findings to the public.
