A Research and Experimentation Strategy. Knowledge Development Framework. Youth Knowledge Development Report 1.4.
Barton, Paul E.; Fraser, Bryna Shore
The Youth Employment and Demonstration Projects Act of 1977 (YEDPA) provided the mandate and resources for experimental and demonstration activity to determine the most effective means to alleviate the employment problems of economically disadvantaged youth. An immediate need was to establish plans and priorities for research, evaluation, and demonstration activity to realize the full potential of YEDPA. This document is the result of the attempt to fill that need, and stems from a review of all available material on programs, research, evaluations, and demonstrations. The recommendations in this report have helped form the framework for and have been integrated into the YEDPA knowledge development activities. Following an overview of YEDPA knowledge development activities, the report covers policy issues, strategy formation, determining what is already known and how it can be integrated into a synthesis for policy development, filling survey and research gaps, evaluation procedures, and new program experiments. References also are included. (KC)
