Federal Education Research and Development for Children and Adolescents: An Analysis of FY 1975 Project Data. Final Report.
Harrell, Adele V.; And Others
The results of an analysis of the Social Research Group's Fiscal Year 1975 project data as it relates to several educational research and development (R&D) issues are summarized in this report. There are four main chapters. Chapter I covers the R&D projects included in the Interagency Research Information System (IRIS) and reports what kind of education is supported by which agencies, performed by what organizations, designed to benefit what populations, and which substantive areas education R&D is focused on. Chapter II discusses project-level characteristics that differentiate the R&D sponsored by the National Institute of Education (NIE) and the U.S. Office of Education (USOE) and identifies data that can be used to describe these differences. Chapter III describes the multifaceted research efforts being supported by NIE and other Federal agencies in the area of curriculum development. Chapter IV discusses the extent that demographic data collected on the principal investigator of each project can be used to describe the research expertise working on education and asks whether the omission of such data by some projects precludes their analytic value. In addition, an extensive set of appendixes conclude the report: (A) a list of the agencies represented in the IRIS data base; (B) the list of tables delivered but not included in this report because of size; (C) the definition of education research used in the production of the tables; (D) the IRIS classification system and associated definitions; and (E) an elaboration of the methodology used for the NIE-USOE comparison.
