Simmons, Robert M.
This annotated bibliography/resource guide is intended to assist users in locating resources on educational research in the Bridgewater (Massachusetts) State College Curriculum Library. The first of five sections provides a listing of 25 basic sources for locating educational research, including indexes and abstracts of periodicals and serials of early childhood education, physical and health education, special education, psychology, and the social sciences. The second section lists 10 handbooks, manuals, and guides that: explain how to conduct efficient online searches, describe educational research methods and strategies, and supply bibliographies for further reading. The third section contains annotated entries for nine books on sources of statistics and about statistical procedures, as well as five entries for Apple computer programs that create spreadsheets and statistical data tables and perform various computations (e.g., means, standard deviations, chi-squares, and multiple regressions). The 22 entries on testing and measurement in the fourth section range from directories of unpublished experimental measures to guides to computer-aided test construction and textbooks about various testing and measurement techniques. The final section highlights five style manuals that outline rules for formal writing and present specifications for bibliographic citations in both print and nonprint forms. (SD)
