Education Research: A Century of Discovery. Review of Research in Education. Volume 40
Alexander, Patricia, Ed.; Levine, Felice J., Ed.; Tate, William, Ed.
American Educational Research Association (AERA)
The centennial volume of "Review of Research in Education" ("RRE") takes a "retrospective, prospective" approach on a diverse range of education research topics spanning the last 100 years. While using historical trends as foundations for their chapters, the authors also look ahead to the most challenging issues and promising directions for the next century. The chapters contribute to cumulative knowledge, capture research developments and findings of sustained significance, and address research innovations anchored in their time or place, which could ultimately shape directions of scholarly promise and potential for the future. To bring conceptual cohesion to the volume, the editors nested the chapters in four thematic sections: (1) the Research Enterprise and the Doing of Education Research; (2) the Contexts of Education; (3) the Process of and Substance of Learning; and (4) the Changing Attention to Diversity and Difference. After an introduction from the editors, chapters include: (1) The Federal Role in Education and the Rise of Social Science Research: Historical and Comparative Perspectives (Nancy Beadie); (2) Scholarly Communication in AERA Journals, 1931 to 2014 (Raf Vanderstraeten, Frédéric Vandermoere, and Maarten Hermans); (3) The Impact of Political Context on the Questions Asked and Answered: The Evolution of Education Research on Racial Inequality (Amy Stuart Wells and Allison Roda); (4) Assessment Gaze, Refraction, and Blur: The Course of Achievement Testing in the Past 100 Years (Eva L.
