Performers of Research and Research-Related Activities in the Field of Education.
Frankel, Joanne; And Others
The American Registry of Research and Research-Related Organizations in Education (ARROE) was compiled to identify those organizations engaged in efforts to improve education through research, development, dissemination, evaluation, and policy study activities. The organizations were contracted between 1976 and 1978, and were selected because they had received contracts or grants for such research, they had published in an education journal, or they were public education agencies. Federal government agencies, however, were excluded from the survey. The organizations were classified according to three groups: (1) state, intermediate, and large local education agencies; (2) research units associated with a college, university, or junior college; or (3) other--including profit and nonprofit research and development organizations, hospitals, publishers, foundations, associations, and noneducational government agencies wuch as state health or manpower agencies. Of 6,346 organizations contacted, 81% responded. In addition to this report, a computerized file of the data collected and a printed directory resulted from this project. Data were analyzed by classification group, by institution, and by organziation within an institution. (This report presents data on the following institutional characteristics: number, type, and locations; primary mission; funding; expenditures; staffing; and project activities. All survey questions are appended.) (Author/GDC)
