Three Ways of Learning More from Follow Through: Secondary Analysis of Extant Data, Compilation and Analysis of Follow-Up Data, and Completely New Studies.
St. Pierre, Robert G.
This discussion argues that additional information can be obtained from the Follow Through program in its current framework. Three ways of generating new knowledge from Follow Through are suggested: (1) secondary analysis of extant data, (2) compilation and analysis of followup data, and (3) completely new studies. Two ways of minimizing costs through the use of existing data on children who have already completed Follow Through programs are also mentioned. In addition, the discussion reviews and comments on some of the suggestions for Follow Through research studies that have been proposed in the 4 years since completion of the national evaluation.
