Using Product and Process Results for Research and Planning: The New Jersey Model.
Mathis, William J.
This paper first explains the unique role and functions of educational research at a state level and how it differs from institutional research and experimental and quasi-experimental research. The unique opportunities and constraints are also elaborated. State educational research has the advantage of central and comprehensive information as well as access to very extensive information. At the same time, the maintenance of this capability is extremely cumbersome. As state educational research must be able to respond to legislative, executive, and judicial requirements on extremely tight time-lines with relatively limited resources (for example, New Jersey's requirement for thorough and efficient (T & E) educational processes in the state's schools and districts), the system must maintain comprehensive information on all components of education while being able to collect other data and perform analyses without notice. The way in which this decision oriented system operates is explicated. (Author/RC)
