Pryor, Carolyn B.
Social Work in Education, v18 n2 p85-93 Apr 1996
Reviews eight techniques for assessing family-school connections studied by participants in a two-year school personnel training program: informal observation and discussion; examination of pre-existing data; review of places, policies, and programs; focus group discussion; mailed survey; survey at school; telephone survey; and radio call-in. These techniques are evaluated in terms of time, cost, direct and indirect benefits, and limitations. (KW)
