This edited volume contains 16 social science-related educational research articles based on papers presented at the 1979 annual meeting of the American Educational Research Association (AERA). The articles and associated commentary are organized according to six symposia held at the meeting--anthropology, evaluation, history, political science, psychology, and sociology. The objective of each symposium was to identify the values imposed by the social science discipline and to determine how researchers tend to treat this subject matter, with particular regard to methodology and concept formation. Titles include "Anthropological Fieldwork: Comments on its Values and Limitations;""Values and Policy in Educational Evaluation;""Democratizing Evaluation;""Distortion of the Historiography of American Education;""Neo-Conservatism and National School Policy;""Values Imposed by Political Science: Implications for Educational Research and Development;""The Influence of Psychology on Education;" and "Sociological Arrogance."
