Meta-Analysis Research: A Potential Choice for CTE Researchers and Consumers
Gordon, Howard R. D.
Online Submission
A search of the ERIC database, Academic Search Premier, and a review of literature suggests that meta-analysis is ignored by career and technical education (CTE) researchers, a situation that is regrettable but remediable. The purpose of this paper was to provide CTE researchers and consumers with selected procedures and guidelines for conducting meta-analytic research. The highlights presented include an historical overview of meta-analysis, selected meta-analysis procedures, advantages of meta-analysis. The paper cautions that CTE consumers and policy makers should be aware of some of the limitations associated with meta-analyses. A key assertion of the paper is that meta-analysis will be most valuable when it is used by those most knowledgeable about the substance of methodology in our field of career and technical education.
