Planning the Evaluation of a Curriculum Innovation: An Emphasis on Research Design and Methodology
Susan M. BANNISTER & Barry J. BANNISTER
This article discusses the rationale and methodology used for the research study of the pilot and initial implementation stages of a curriculum innovation called Programme DARE, i.e. Drug Abuse Resistance Education. It seeks to explain the use of a particular research style, namely that of the augmented Case Study, and refers to the contribution of various research techniques to this Mixed Methodology, most particularly that of Programme Analysis, in addressing the issues arising from the study. In developing a research design for the study, the article proposes that this methodology is appropriate for the particular environment into which Programme DARE was introduced.
