A Research Agenda for the National Institute of Education.
Hodgkinson, Harold L.
This speech outlines issues that the author thinks would have to be considered in building a research and development agenda concerned with the relationship of education to work. Background about U.S. investment in educational research and development is given and budgetary expenditures in the educational research and development field are compared with those for medicine and agriculture. The dimensions of American social, political, and economic existence which should be considered in developing an agenda for educational research are discussed. An analysis of population trends in the U.S. is given in relation to the topic. Other issues related to education and work, which are also examined, include the following: (1) The organizational system; (2) judicial influence; (3) the academic sieve: a need for reform (this area deals with evaluation criteria, e.g., for measuring creativity and decisionmaking abilities); (4) a needs assessment, and (5) three major evaluation questions: What do we want people to be able to do? What level of performance do we require? and How good is good enough? (LAS)
