Annotated Bibliography of Studies in Special Education.
The bibliography contains brief descriptions of approximately 160 completed or in progress studies in special education, most of which have been sponsored or conducted by federal, state, and local education agencies. References, most of which are to studies conducted from 1975 to 1981, are designed to familiarize educators with research on the implementation of state and federal laws for educating handicapped children and to provide users with the names and addresses of individuals and agencies that can be contacted for additional information on the methodologies and results of each of the studies. Studies are divided into the following categories: child count, competency testing/diplomas, declining enrollment, education programs (arts education, preschool/early childhood education, secondary education, vocational education), eligibility criteria, extended school year, finance/cost, future trends, handicapping conditions, identification/referral/evaluation, implementation of state and/or federal laws, incidence of handicapping conditions, individualized education programs, institutions, interagency cooperation/agreements, least restrictive environment/mainstreaming, management/coordination of services, management information services, minorities, monitoring, paperwork systems, parents, personnel, placement, procedural safeguards, program quality, public awareness, related services, reporting, rural education, and student turnover. Information for each study usually includes the title, name of agency conducting the study, brief description of what the study examined, data collection dates, title and date of reports and other materials resulting from the study, and a name and address of the agency and/or individual to contact for additional information.
