Summary of Reviewers Comments [of the Rand Corporation's Design for a Longitudinal Study of School Desegregation.]
Jackson, Gregg
Four groups of people were requested to review the Rand Corporation's design for a longitudinal study of school desegregation. These groups can be labeled as Desegregation and Minority Student Education Experts, Distinguished Social Scientists, Federal Officals Responsible for Desegregation Research, and U.S. Commission on Civil Rights (USCCR) Staff Members. In late August, 1974, letters were sent to prospective reviewers asking them to participate. Twenty-two of the 25 prospective reviewers outside of USCCR agreed. Nineteen of the 22 outside reviewers submitted comments. One additional outside reviewer was contacted and submitted his comments. This summary is based on the feedback provided by those 26 reviewers. When the study design documents were sent to the reviewers, an evaluation questionnaire was attached. The reviewers were asked to answer the 27 multiple choice questions, to add any needed clarifying comments in the spaces provided after each question, and to write up to six single spaced typed pages of additonal comments addressing any issues they thought to be important. The responses of each respondent to the 27 questions are given, as are the average rating for each reviewer, for each group, and for all groups together. Those results are briefly discussed and then the narrative comments made by each reviewer are summarized. (Author/JM)
