NIE Conference on Studies in Teaching; Panel 9, Research Methodology.
Gage, N. L., Ed.
This panel's goal was to improve the validity and utility of measurement, design, and analysis in research on teaching through the stimulation of new methodological knowledge and through the identification and translation of useful existing knowledge from other descriptions. This panel tried to identify as many methodological problems as possible which limit the productivity of research on teaching, and then adopted four "approaches" which it believed to be solutions that encompass all the methodological problems of research on teaching. These four approaches were (1) to develop and test new analysis and design strategies appropriate for research on teaching; (2) to increase understanding of existing measurement strategies for research on teaching and, where appropriate, develop new measurement strategies; (3) to identify, demonstrate, and disseminate methodologies from other research disciplines which appear to have merit for research on teaching; and (4) to consider the utility of standards for improving methodological practice in research on teaching.
