The Process of Planning and Designing Research for an Educational Telecommunications Effort. Satellite Technology Demonstration, Technical Report No. 0209.
Connolly, A. J.; And Others
The Satellite Technology Demonstration (STD) designed research for a satellite-based communication system that would transmit educational television programs. Their procedures were subject to a series of external and internal evaluations by the project sponsors, the National Institute of Education. In regard to external evaluation, STD recommended that: (1) The National Institute of Education should communicate in a more consistent, rapid fashion, provide more research and technical information, and facilitate information exchange between related research projects; (2) project personnel should be able to provide input into projected bids being evaluated by the sponsors and receive evaluations made by outside agencies; (3) the cost of these evaluations be considered at the project's onset. In regard to internal evaluations, STD recommended that: (1) experienced research personnel be hired at the project's initiation and work closely with management activities; (2) the additional positions of project historian, expeditor of data acquisition, and disseminator be filled. This is one of five papers on the project. (NR)
