Without jargon or mathematical theory to hinder a quick understanding and use, here are the research tools and techniques you can grasp and immediately apply to obtain research services from others or do research yourself. Johnson makes clear that to succeed in any public agency management position, you have to be able to think analytically and know how to assess the quality of research results. By providing the underlying concepts and just enough methodology to operationalize them, she gives you exactly what you need―in a clear, straightforward way that takes the fear out of learning. You will find here an especially wide range of practical guidelines and examples, all from the author's own and others' experiences in a variety of settings within the public sector. Throughout her book she emphasizes the how of research―how to do it, how to make sense of its findings―and covers all the basic statistical tools, concetrating steadily on interpreting research results. An important, reader-friendly text for students of public administration, and for their often perplexed colleagues already on the job.Johnson explains that public administrators do not do research themselves all that often. But with the rising demand for results measurement, balancing scorecards, benchmarking and assessing customer satisfaction, they do need to understand the basics of what research is and at least have more than just a glimmer of how it is done. Her book offers both―a simple, easily grasped presentation of research concepts and principles, plus all of the essentials of doing program evaluation, policy analysis, and applied social science. It is especially useful as a text in such courses as research methods, program evaluation and introduction to applied statistics, usually found in public administration programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels. And for people already in jobs outside the academic community, people who are now asked to do tasks that they seldom did before―and never expected they would be asked to do―it is essential.

This study investigated the impact of the Dual Enrollment Program on the academic achievement of low-income and minority high school students, in a coastal district in a southern state. Bridging the gap between high school and college is the ultimate goal of this program. The study focused on how students find out, about the program, their participation, and success rate, in the program. A survey was sent to high school guidance counselors, and a few of them completed it. They indicated that students were informed about the program through teachers, administrators, guidance counselors, school postings, and letters sent home to parents. A telephone interview was conducted with Personnel from the Community college, and Archival data were examined. The results of the study revealed that there was a small percentage of minority students participating in the program, compared to white students. It also indicated that minority students who participated in the program were successful, and went on to college. There was reluctance on the part of many guidance counselors to respond to the surveys, even after repeated requests from their Supervisors. Community College personnel pointed out, that recent increased efforts have been made to promote the DE Program in the district.
