Summary

To determine whether the content of the Appalachia Educational Laboratory's (AEL) Regional Exchange, which is published as a regional insert to a quarterly magazine entitled the Educational R&D Report, is geared to its target audiences, a content analysis was conducted on five of the AEL inserts. The research questions formulated for the content analysis were: (1) What categories of and how many educators receive the AEL Regional Exchange? (2) What percent of the articles are geared to those categories of educators? (3) What proportion of the insert's total column lines is targeted to those categories of educators? and (4) What is the average number of column lines dedicated to each category? The mailing list of the Educational R&D Report was analyzed to determine the educator categories used in the content analysis. A content analysis form was then designed and the articles in each insert coded for the educator categories at which they were targeted. Data were tallied and analyzed. The results are discussed in detail and presented in four tables corresponding to the four questions addressed by the study. A set of recommendations for changes in the AEL Regional Exchange and a copy of the content analysis form are included. (JL)
