Social Experimentation: A Method for Planning and Evaluating Social Intervention summarizes the available knowledge about how randomized experiments might be used in planning and evaluating ameliorative social programs. The book presents various aspects of social experimentation - design, measurement, execution, sponsorship, and utilization of results. Chapters are devoted to topics on experimentation as a method of program planning and evaluation; experimental design and analysis; institutional and political factors in social experimentation; and aspects of time and institutional

He also covers baseline measures, including when to measure costs; missing data registry; and analyses of quality assurance, including analyses that have to be engineered to suit the departures from the design.

Science in liberal arts colleges: a longitudinal study of 49 selective colleges by W. Rodman Snelling( Book )

5 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book will provide administrators, educators, and counselors in secondary and higher education environments with significant data on the influences behind a student's decision to choose a particular college. Specifically, it provides descriptions of some temporal and behavioral aspects of the liberal arts science graduates' decisions to enter the sciences and to choose the liberal arts college: when students form vocational judgments about entering the science; at what stage of their education the choice of a specific field is made; and what graduates perceive as major influences determining such choices. Prepared under the auspices of the Research Corporation, the study considers five categories (biology, pre-medicine, chemistry, mathematics, and physics) of graduates from 49 private four-year liberal arts colleges of acknowledged high quality. Data were extracted from responses to a six-page questionnaire completed by 16,395 science majors graduated during 1958-1967. Findings show that nearly half of the science majors responding had decided their major by the time they were in the ninth grade, although the specific science was not usually decided upon until later. Pre-medical students made their decisions the earliest, closely followed by those majoring in physics. (Author/PR)

ROBERT F. BORUCH AND ROBERT W. PEARSON During the 13th Century. a vigorous argument among Middle Eastern rabbis concerned how one ought to make a fair assessment of an olive crop value for tithing purposes. Should one consolidate the crop. systematically mix the olives. and then conscientiously draw a small random sample? Or. might one simply grab a handful of olives from the nearest basket and make an estimate of the crop's worth. The issue. of course. is one that research designers and research users confront often -- balancing the need for information against the resources that must be put into actually collecting the data -- in deciding how much effort is warranted to produce fair evidence. For the rabbis. who argued for twenty-five years over the matter. the issue can be resolved with a special rule. In this as in other cases. if the demand for information is biblical in origin -- if God is its source. then one ought to be considerably conscientious; a more scientific and more expensive endeavor is warranted. We may at times subscribe to this kind of rule of thumb in determining what quality of information is warranted under what conditions. But other rules and approaches are possible. And as medieval Jewish. Arabic. and Christian philosophy suggests. the alternatives need to be thought out and tested. Our interest is a bit more contemporary but has some spiritual kinship with early scholars' interest in empirical evidence

The faculty role in campus unrest by Robert F Boruch( Book )

5 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anecdotal evidence suggests that college faculty members are highly involved in student protests but there is little systematic data available to support or refute this contention. The current study was undertaken to document and assess the participation of faculty in student unrest phenomena. This report contains a summary of administrators' perceptions of the topic. Information was derived from responses to mailed questionnaires sent during 1968 to academic deans at 281 colleges and universities. The institutional sample was diverse; percentages were weighted in order to obtain population estimates. It was found that student protests occurred at slightly more than half the sampled institutions. Faculty representatives had a major role in administrative planning to deal with protests at about 25%, and provided information about the protest to the administration prior to the event in an equal number of cases. Faculty involvement with planning a protest was associated with occurrence of more peaceful types of demonstrations; correlations of faculty (or teaching assistant) planning and participation were smallest with physically violent and physical obstructionist protests. Faculty members were perceived as sympathetic supporters of protesters at about half the institutions and took leadership roles at 11%. Few deans felt that relations between faculty and administration had deteriorated as a result of the protest. The data indicate that some restructuring of faculty-administrative relations is warranted or desirable. (Js)
Dropout prevention studies in developing countries : a systematic review and meta-analysis by Anthony Petrosino( )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This case illustrates ideas about systematic reviews of evidence and meta-analysis in a stepwise fashion. Presented is a discussion about studies of the effectiveness of interventions that are designed to prevent school dropout in low and low to middle income countries and to use tests in high-quality randomized controlled trials and high-quality quasi-experiments. The coverage includes framing the questions, searching literature, computing effect sizes, and portraying results on 'what works'

This article concerns recommendations made in a report to Congress and the Department of Education on evaluation of federally supported education programs. The work covers local, state, and federal efforts to address questions about why and how well evaluations are done, and about how results are used. The recommendations are directed toward improving the quality of evaluations and enhancing their usefulness. (Author)
The black student in American colleges [by] Alan E. Bayer [and] Robert F. Boruch by Alan E Bayer( Book )

4 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research findings on the black student and on predominantly Negro institutions of higher education in the US have clarified 2 sets of facts: (1) less than 6% of all students currently enrolled in US colleges are black, whereas almost 12% of the US college-age population are black, and (2) more than two-fifths of the black students attend predominantly Negro institutions, which represent 4% of the current 2,300 US undergraduate institutions. These findings have prompted the planning or implementation of programs at federal, state, and local levels for the purpose of increasing higher educational opportunities for black and other minority group youth. This report provides a black-nonblack comparison, in the form of a summary, of student characteristics by institution, race, and sex. The national norms presented were compiled from data provided by 12,300 black students and 230,582 nonblack students on a Student Information Form. All of the students were entering freshmen at 358 institutions in the fall of 1968. Characteristics included in the summary are age, high school grades, postbaccalaureate degree aspirations, selection of college major, parental education, religious background, family income, college choice influences, financial support for college education, marriage plans and career aspirations, and study habits. The data on which these comparisons are based appear in 24 tables appended to the report. (WM)
