The Impact of Evaluative Research on Educational Programs for the Poor
by Albert E. Myers — 1970
Professor Myers' outspoken article is based on a talk be gave at the American Psychological Association in September, 1966. His description of the infinitesimal impact of scientific research on action programs is certainly as accurate today as when it was first written, as are his pictures of administrators in search of justifications and teachers fearful of evaluations. Research and evaluation have been welcomed, he says, only by those compelled to submit reports to the Feds. If research programs are ever to have local impact, researchers must cease to be outsiders and become involved with the systems they are attempting to serve.
