Council for Educational Development and Research, Washington, DC.
The 18 member institutions of the Council for Educational Development and Research, Inc., constitute a national resource for conducting high-quality research and development and related technical assistance. Created in the mid-sixties by the federal government, and working in all 50 states, these institutions maintain multidisciplinary staffs and specialized facilities for doing research, development, evaluation, and training. This booklet describes the particular focus, interest, and expertise of each CEDaR member institution. In addition, each discusses its own capabilities in terms of resources, staff, and facilities. The institutions' particular research and development processes are described, along with a listing of institutional accomplishments. Agencies needing work performed relating to research, development, evaluation, or training will find the booklet a helpful reference list of qualified contractors. Each institution has experience performing both small-scale projects and multiyear programs. Their expertise ranges from work in early adolescence through adult education, and basic research through product development and dissemination. Curriculum development, large-scale evaluation and monitoring, and management training are all included. (Author/DW)
