Research in Educational Productivity

This series of works on educational productivity is centered on how more can be accomplished in education without consuming additional material, human, and social resources. Modem nations seek to enlarge learning as an end in its own right and also to increase "human capital" as a means of promoting individual opportunity for advancement, national economic growth, human welfare, and the quality of life.

In such an inter-disciplinary, practical spirit, this series aims to enlarge, compile, and systematize knowledge about educational productivity. It will deal with the theory of educational systems, the research underlying their design, and their effectiveness as implemented. Some volumes will be written by one or two authors on a given aspect of educational productivity. Most, however, will be edited thematic works with chapters written by several specialists in various aspects of the volume's theme.
