Federal Programs Supporting Educational Change, Vol. 2: Factors Affecting Change Agent Projects.
Berman, Paul; Pauly, Edward W.
This second volume in the change-agent series reports the interim results of an exploratory statistical analysis of a survey of a nationwide sample of 293 change-agent projects funded by four federal demonstration programs--Elementary Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Title III, Innovative Projects; ESEA Title VII, Bilingual Projects; Vocational Education Act, 1968 Amendments, Part D, Exemplary Programs; and the Right-To-Read Program. The study addresses three research questions: To what extent did differences among the federal change-agent programs explain variations in the implementation and continuation of innovative projects? Which characteristics of innovative projects significantly affected their implementation and continuation? Were differences in institutional settings related to variations in project implementation and continuation, controlling for other factors, and, if so, which institutional aspects had significant and important effects?
