Proposed Research Program (Part A: Technical Narrative) on Assessment and Analysis of Education Satellite Communications Demonstration. Phase III.
Battelle Memorial Inst., Columbus, OH. Columbus Labs.
A proposal to monitor and summarize the experience that will be gained during the course of the ATS-F Education Satellite Communications Demonstration is described. The goals of the demonstration and the context in which it must be evaluated are discussed in an introduction. Subsequent sections deal with specific analytic approaches proposed, the project design, and the organization of the plan. The section on project design includes discussions of both the report schedule and the category system adopted for the analysis. The project management plan and the work plan and schedule are detailed in the organizational section. Finally, there are a set of four appendixes, entitled: 1) design of large-scale experiments; 2) data collection and analysis; 3) potential concept papers; and 4) target populations and the "assessment" process. The first appendix is useful in the planning of any large scale experiment, since it describes statistical concepts in general terms, and is not restricted to ideas relevant only to this study. (WDR)
