Thus, the proposed research will be based on an assumption that respondents will answer the survey questions truthfully.
As a consequence of time and monetary constraints, the data required for the proposed research study will be collected through the administration of a survey questionnaire to a convenience sample of elementary educators at a group of four elementary schools in a single school district in New Jersey. The inability to apply random procedures in the selection of the sample may be expected to limit the generalizability of the study findings.
Permission will be obtained to administer a survey questionnaire to a convenience sample of 48 teachers, educational specialists, and administrators at four elementary schools in a single school district in New Jersey. A pilot test of the survey questionnaire will be administered to a sub-sample of six teachers, educational specialists, and administrators, after which the survey questionnaire will be modified as necessary.
The survey questionnaire will be administered over a four-day period. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) procedures will be applied to the data collected to test the research hypotheses. Statistical significance will be established at the p<.05 level of probability.
Literature relevant to the problem to be investigated is reviewed in this section--Part II. The emphasis in this literature review is on the findings reported. Considerations of the validity or reliability of the studies were considered to be irrelevant. Thus, study findings reported in this literature review are presented as being equally relevant to the topic that will be investigated without regard for the quality or character of the underlying research.
