Keys to Interpreting Research Results for Teachers and School Administrators.
This guide contains suggestions for interpreting educational research results and, indirectly, makes suggestions for research report writers. The purpose of the study and hypotheses should be stated clearly. Several approaches to reporting statistical results are outlined, and some suggestions are made for evaluating the results of cause-and-effect studies, correlational studies, and the results of questionnaire studies. It is important that those who use educational research be able to recognize potential weaknesses, and this is particularly important for research studies related to student learning in schools. Also discussed is the current trend toward considering context in the assessment of student achievement. (SLD)
