The Administrator-Researcher Interaction: The Conduct of Cooperative Research. Research, Evaluation, Development Paper Series. No. 4.
Murray, Stephen L.; Smith, Nick L.
The thesis of this paper is that by recognizing the separate abilities and insights of educational administrators and researchers, cooperative research can be conducted that benefits both parties, yet requires neither a new research methodology nor increased research sophistication of administrators. The authors address this thesis from the perspective of a research effort initiated by an administrator as an aid to the operation of an educational institution. After discussing possible approaches to successfully conducting such a cooperative research effort, the authors present a brief case study involving a county detention center and two school districts in order to illustrate some of the ways educational researchers and administrators may work together productively.
