Utilization of Research by a Policy-Making Regulatory Agency: A Case Study.
Powell, Marjorie
The California Commission for Teacher Preparation and Licensing, responsible for teacher certification and approval of programs of teacher education, is conducting a major research effort to identify teaching behaviors that are related to student learning of reading and mathematics in the elementary grades: The Beginning Teacher Evaluation Study. While the results will not indicate which specific policy alternatives should be adopted, they will have, and already have had, an impact on the thoughts and actions of the members of the policy making body. Policy makers have modified their conceptions of teaching and teacher education; learned about the research process and used research to answer other questions; used results in their individual work; and heard the results quoted by individuals arguing for specific policy decisions. In addition, those subject to the regulations of the Commission have become more aware of and concerned with the results of research on teaching. Specific examples are discussed to elaborate each of these uses of the research results. (Author/GDC)
