Research and education reform : roles for the Office of Educational Research and Improvement by National Research Council (U.S.)( )

19 editions published between 1991 and 2003 in English and held by 2,014 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Committee on the Federal Role in Education Research (cfrer), convened by the National Academy of Sciences (nas), studied the structure, operations, and functioning of the Office of Educational Research and Improvement (oeri) in the Department of Education and the organizations it supports, and reviewed the roles of other agencies and the overall research needs of U.S. education. The United States is currently committed to education reform, in which the oeri may play a major role. The examination of the oeri found an agency severely challenged by external difficulties as well as internal problems. External problems include public conflicts about education and funding. Internal problems include a weak advisory council and frequent administrative turnover. Uneven quality control, limited coordination among oeri offices, and poor information dissemination are flaws that should be overcome. The cfrer concludes that the oeri should be rebuilt. Cfrer recommendations are grouped according to: (1) governance; (2) organization and functions; (3) operations; and (4) funding. To accomplish its redefined functions, the oeri should receive a substantial funding increase. There is a 220-item list of references, and an appendix gives biographical sketches of 17 cfrer and staff members. (Sld)

Research Conference on Learning and the Educational Process, at Stanford University, June 21-July 30, 1965 by Richard C Atkinson( Book )

3 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A research training conference on learning was held for 37 psychologists and educational researchers. The 6-week conference centered its activities on such topics as language learning, computer simulation, instructional procedures design, attitude and personality development, and curriculum evaluation. Lectures and talks were offered by instructors and visiting consultants. Topics discussed included (1) language learning, (2) computer simulation of intellectual processes, (3) design of instructional procedures and experimentation on learning, (4) the nature of aptitude, attitude development and change, (5) personality development in college, and (6) curriculum evaluation. One of the conclusions drawn was that a general acquaintance with significant current work was achieved. Development of competence in depth, however, was not as successful. Identification of areas of study and motivation to do research were indicated as accomplishments of the conference. (Rs)
