Role of Research in Individual Events


As school administrators face increasing pressure to provide a rigorous rationale for funding requests and a strong accounting of the benefits from funds expended, the forensic community will need to adopt an offensive posture, if the activities program is to remain a vital part of the overall communication program. Therefore in adopting an affirming stance, the forensic community will need a viable data base to sustain its case. The need for integrating an active research component into the life space of the forensic community is rapidly becoming a necessity. To help the forensic community sustain itself, not only is there a need for additional research but a commitment to facilitate the research via participatory support. This theoretical article affords a rationale for new research by isolating some aspects of forensic activities which might prove to be important areas of research; explores some of the problem areas for researchers.that need to be overcome, as well as discussing a role which forensic organizations might play; and offers some guidelines for assessing research projects.
