The Normative Structure of Knowledge Production and Utilization in Education. Volume 2. Case Studies of the Infrastructure of Educational R and D.
Markley, O. W.
This is the second volume of a report on a study that (1) investigated the "normative structure" (the governance system) of knowledge production and utilization (KPU) activities in education, (2) developed an analytical framework through which to understand how formal policy acts as a "regulator" of activities in KPU, (3) described the major policies of significance to KPU and how they influence the governance of KPU processes in 10 different case studies, and (4) made recommendations that would help in the design of a monitoring program. This volume of the report demonstrates the use of the analytic framework and describes the substantive findings that resulted when the framework was applied to 10 different case studies. Some of the case studies described in this volume involve (1) the National Institute of Education policy, (2) the federal procurement policy and knowledge production utilization in education, (3) the Far West Laboratory as a research and development performer, (4) minicourses as an example of policies affecting the dissemination/utilization of a successful research and development product, (5) the School Mathematics Study Group Project as an example of Policies affecting the dissemination/utilization of an R and D product, and (6) the ESEA Title III Teacher Initiated Innovation Program.
