Standards in Conducting and Publishing Research in Education
Thompson, Bruce
Online Submission, Keynote address delivered at the Mid-Western Educational Research Association (MWERA) (St. Louis, MO, Oct 26, 2007)
Arthur Levine's (2007) recent report on the academic preparation of education doctoral students, Educating Researchers, http://www.edschools.org/EducatingResearchers/educating_researchers.pdf is highly critical of both AERA and the scholarly training of education doctoral students. One criticism Levine (2007) offers is his view that educational researchers have no standards with which to evaluate their own and each others' work. The report comes on the heals of Mosteller and Boruch's (2002) Evidence Matters, and Towne and Shavelson's (2003) Scientific Research in Education (cf. Towne, Wise & Winters, 2005). These reports provide context for discussing AERA's (2006) "Standards for Reporting on Empirical Social Science Research in AERA Publications," http://www.aera.net/uploadedFiles/Opportunities/ StandardsforReportingEmpiricalSocialScience_PDF.pdf and related developments, such as the 2005 creation of the Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness.
