Content Analysis--As a Research Tool for Higher Education.
Hardee, Melvene Draheim, Ed.
This document presents four articles concerning content analysis. The first article reviews content analysis as a research tool for higher education. Content analysis, a research methodology eminently well-suited to legislation prediction, is examined in the second article. The third article, the characterization of American student dissent in selected general circulation magazines, comments that a distinct advantage of content analysis is that the producers of the content under analysis are not aware that their product is being scrutinized. The final article, a content analysis of statements concerning students on student rights and responsibilities from policy manuals of governing boards in higher educational institutions, suggests that the researcher is able to see the emphasis of a board of governors by virtue of examining the absence or presence of items or categories of content in the written policies.
