Educational Research in the United Kingdom: Scotland 1970-1972.
Scottish Council for Research in Education.
Over 35 educational research projects in Scotland are briefly described in this survey report which is an update of the research projects being performed in Scotland during 1970-72. A variety of research projects in general subject areas such as the teaching of reading, science, and English and foreign language are described. Other research projects examine such areas as assessment, handicapped, higher education, and vocational education. Among projects, there is very little overlap in areas researched. Two projects which illustrate the wide range of investigations are "A Logical Analysis of the Role of Hostel Wardens" and "Courses for Craftsmen." Each project description is presented in outline format and includes: project name; organization or sponsoring institution; principal research; aim and objectives; methods of research; number of workers; time schedule; and financial source. A list of principal researchers, organizations, and descriptors concludes the document. (JR)
