The Role of Research in Vocational Education: The Significance Issue.
Swanson, Gordon I.
Journal of Vocational Education Research, v16 n4 p25-33 1991
Guidelines for achieving significance in vocational education research include the following: (1) specify whose problem is addressed; (2) describe consequences of conclusions or recommendations; (3) involve those affected in the inquiry; (4) do not let statistical precision substitute for purpose; and (5) avoid research to justify political decisions, conclusions with outrageous side effects, and lack of conceptual capital.
