The Market for Education Information: A Synopsis of the Educational Information Market Study.
ERIC Clearinghouse on Teacher Education, Washington, DC.
This paper is a synopsis of a study of information needs in education undertaken to identify patterns that imply user requirements for effective information services. The findings of the study show that the educational information user market can be readily segmented by work roles (teachers, higher education faculty, state school board members, local education agencies). Among these work roles, significant patterns of similarities and differences can be discerned in terms of the kinds of information sources preferred, the tolerable delay in the delivery of information, preferred information source characteristics, preferences for information products and services, and problems in accessing and using information.
