A Program for the National Institute of Education (A Report of the PSAC Panel on Educational R&D).
President's Science Advisory Commission, Washington, DC. Panel on Educational Research and Development.
This document, a 1970 report from the President's Science Advisory Council's Panel on Education Research and Development, presents suggestions concerning ways of organizing the program of the newly founded National Institute of Education (NIE). This report is concerned only with the organization of the research and development program itself. The suggestions are organized into three divisions. These divisions, with some of the points discussed in each, are as follows: a) Improving Educational Opportunity for the Individual Student--use of language, learning and curriculum development, social interactions as they relate to the individual student, aid to deprived children, opportunities for the gifted, education of school staff; b) Improving the Social Organization of Learning--competitive schools, experimental schools; and c) Educational Goals, Standards and Evaluation--evaluation of "natural" experiments, evaluation of long-term objectives of schools, evaluation of broad standards of student development, investigation of the effects of tests on education, the national assessment, and dissemination. An appendix includes a comparison between the suggestions of this report and the proposal for NIE of Roger E. Levien. (JA)
