Hawkins, Robert P.; Mathews, Judith R.
Education and Treatment of Children, v22 n2 p117-35 May 1999
Introduces a special issue on the advantages of conducting "Level 1 research," a method of service-delivery accountability which involves systematically monitoring clinical outcomes without attempting to scientifically prove what is causing those effects. This type of research is compared with both Level 3 research (scientific research) and Level 2 research (semiscientific evaluation of procedures or programs). (DB)
