The Translation of Research Into Practice in School Psychology
Jack I. Bardon
ABSTRACT: The translation of research into practice in school psychology is seen as having three related but distinct components: (a) the application of research findings to practice,(b) practice as a form of research, and (c) practice informing research. Each component is discussed. Problems in the use of research findings are presented. It is concluded that research and practice are compatible, but that stereotypic thinking about research must be replaced by a broader conception of research and its relationship to professional functioning in school psychology.
