Educational Research Directions 1990-1995: Extracts from Descriptions of Primary Tasks of 17 OERI Centers from March 1990 USDOE Request for Proposals, and 17 Winning Proposals.
Wallat, Cynthia
The primary tasks of the Office of Educational Research and Improvement (OERI) sponsored research projects taken from Department of Education (DOE) Requests for Proposals from March 1990 are listed, and extracts from winning proposals are presented. As reflected in the list of topics of the 17 Centers that OERI announced it would fund, educational research was broadly conceived. Each extract describes the primary tasks the research will address, its organizing framework, and the proposed research activities. Centers are usually housed at universities and are often the collaborative effort of university consortia. A table summarizes the projects and performing institutions in alphabetical order by the following areas of research called for in the Request for Proposals: (1) assessment; (2) families, communities, and children's learning; (3) education in the inner cities; (4) cultural diversity and second-language learning; (5) writing and literacy; (6) student learning; (7) learning to teach; (8) postsecondary learning, teaching, and assessment; (9) teacher performance evaluation and educational accountability; (10) education policies and student learning; (11) adult literacy; (12) educational quality of the workforce; (13) organization and restructuring of schools; (14) mathematics teaching and learning; (15) science teaching and learning; (16) education finance and productivity; and (17) literature teaching and learning. In most cases, the title of the Center is included, but some will be incorporated into existing Centers. (Author/SLD)
