The Dissertation in Education from 1950 to 1990.
Coorough, Calleen; Nelson, Jack
Educational Research Quarterly, v20 n4 p3-14 Jun 1997
A content analysis of 10,279 dissertation abstracts in education from 1950 to 1990 shows that the descriptive design, predominantly in surveys, has dominated. Almost one-fourth of the dissertations used no statistics, and almost one-third failed to find statistically significant results. Few changes are apparent over the years. (SLD)
