Research Methods >> Survey Research

by David Phelps - 2019
The research–practice gap is an enduring problem in the field of education. The gap refers to educational research that is not practice informed, and educational practice that is not research informed. A popular approach to bridge the research–practice gap in education is to build partnerships between schools and universities that are active within the context of a school setting (rather than exclusively in a laboratory school or through college courses).

by Leslie Herrenkohl, Kate Napolitan, Todd Herrenkohl, Elham Kazemi, Logan McAuley & David Phelps - 2019
Washington State’s grant for school–university partnerships provided a large research university and Blakeview Elementary School (pseudonym) an opportunity to engage in a shared visioning process that led to establishing a full-service community school.

Achieving educational social justice requires teachers, administrators, teacher education programs, and community organizations to work together to meet the needs of students and their families as teachers—both novice and experienced—develop the skills and dispositions to teach all children. This case study uses mixed-methods research to analyze how one school-university partnership navigated the challenges inherent in such collaborative work.

by Charles Judd - 1938
The survey movement has proved to be highly important, not only because of the information that surveys have supplied to communities and school officers, but also because of the opportunity they have given to students of the science of education to develop techniques of investigation.

by H. L. Smith - 1914
In preparing the following paper, I have secured many suggestions from the publications of the National Bureau of Education, from the many excellent annual school reports and school surveys that have been published during the past three or four years, and from several individuals who were kind enough to share a part of their time with me in personal interviews on the subject under discussion. Of the school reports, I wish to mention especially the recent ones from the following cities: Cleveland, Ohio; Elmira, New York; Louisville, Kentucky; Newton, Massachusetts; New York, New York.

by Charles Judd - 1914
The summary of school surveys now presented is not complete, but it includes all of the major surveys and gives a view of the different types of such inquiries. The chronology of reports is respected in a general way and the reader will certainly not fail to see that there has been a steady evolution in the methods of inquiry and in the form of presenting results.
