An Analytical Review of Longitudinal and Related Studies as They Apply to the Educational Process. Preliminary Report, Volume I.
Gerst, Arthur; Trent, James W.
This document is the first 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 represents a preliminary summary type review of some of the relevant issues suggested by the research; outlines a beginning framework and set of criteria for the analysis, synthesis, and evaluation of the longitudinal studies examined; presents the specifications of one of four models being developed as a framework for the synthesis of the findings; and examines the initial implications of the review for the further efforts of the project and related research.
