Determining an Appropriate Sampling Method. School Accountability Series. Monograph 3.
McCallon, Earl; McClaran, Rutledge
This is one of a series of eight short monographs intended to aid practicing educators in planning and conducting accountability programs in schools. This booklet discusses how to determine a sampling method that is appropriate to the objectives of a particular research or evaluation effort. Short sections focus in turn on why and when to sample, how to determine the proper size of a sample, and on brief discussions of four sampling methods, including simple random sampling, stratified random sampling, systematic sampling, and cluster sampling.
