Use of Educational Research and Development Resources by Public School Districts: Contractor Report. Survey Report.
Chaney, Bradford; Farris, Elizabeth
Public school districts vary widely in the extent to which they are aware of, receive, and use research and development (R&D) resources produced by four major programs within the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Educational Research and Improvement (OERI). A 95 percent response rate to a survey sent to a probability sample of 1,093 public school districts concerning their receipt and use of R&D resources revealed that 82 percent recognized ERIC Clearinghouses; 72 percent recognized Regional Educational Laboratories; 65 percent recognized National Diffusion Network (NDN) State Facilitators; and 64 percent recognized National Research and Development Centers. The study is intended to determine the receipt and use by public school districts of R&D resources from OERI-funded programs and other sources, and to learn about school districts' future needs for R&D resources in various areas of education. Included with the text are 9 figures and 13 tables. The cover letter and survey form are appended. (MLF)
