BIA EDUCATION RESEARCH BULLETIN, YEAR 1973

RESEARCH AND EVALUATION REPORT SERIES

Thomas R. Hopkins

The Education activity of the BIA has always produced a large and steady number of very useful reports. In recent time, there seems to be an increasingly larger number of high quality reports. Too, throughout the years, there has not been an attempt to organize or arrange the reports in such a manner that they become a useful and systematic body of information. In order to provide a systematic arrangement of high quality reports so that they may be made available to BIA educators, a Research and Evaluation Report Series has been established by the Indian Education Resources Center (IERC), Division of Evaluation and Program Review.

The general objectives of the Series are to:

(1) Provide a systematic arrangement of education reports.

(2) Identify those reports considered to be high in quality.

(3) Make pertinent data available to BIA educators and when possible, to educators outside the BIA.

(4) Make is possible for professional educators involved in research pertinent to the schooling of Indian children to share their experiences with a greater audience.

(5) Assist in the overall evaluation process of the BIA Education activity.

The criteria for including a report in the Series are as follows: The report should:

(1) Reflect in some manner a systematic or scientific process relative to research and/or evaluation.

(2) Describe a research or evaluation activity that is underway or going to take place.

(3) Relate to a need that is broader than the immediate situation.

(4) Be well written and complete with a proper reference system, notes and/or bibliography.

(5) Be objective.

(6) Be directly related to the education of Indian children.

(7) Have qualitative and/or quantitative data.

(8) Describe in detail an activity or program.

A committee comprised of Indian Education Resources staff and Area Offices will make recommendations to the Evaluation Division concerning additions to the Series. Area Offices may submit items for consideration. Also, reports submitted by Area Offices in a routine manner may be picked up and given consideration. However, Area reports will have Area Office concurrence before they are finally included in the Series.

Dissemination of the reports can be handled from a number of locations. For instance, an Area report included in the Series may be disseminated from their office. Central Office Divisions may disseminate reports developed by their personnel. The only condition to which Areas, Agencies, and other Central Office Divisions would be held is that they would agree to place the following designation on the cover or title page, "Research and Evaluation Report No: Placing the number on the report is important, for without it, the idea is lost. In summary, control of dissemination is not to be centralized. Control of numbering and for general administration of the Series will rest with the IERC Office, Division of Evaluation and Program Review.

It may be that teachers, principals, superintendents, aides, etc., have written a Master's Thesis or a Doctoral Dissertation and would like to have it considered for inclusion in the Series. If so, they should forward it through the proper channels to the IERC. In fact, all correspondence relative to the Series would be addressed to the Coordinator, IERC, P.O. Box 1788, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87103.

The following reports have been included in the Series. Unless otherwise indicated, copies may be obtained by writing the address given.

Nonetheless, a sincere effort will be made to meet all requests made by BIA personnel. All Education personnel are encouraged to participate in the Series so your contributions and suggestions are solicited.
