Development of a Guidebook for Determining the Value of Research Results

The primary objective of this study is to develop a guidebook to be used by all STC research sections that will allow a consistent approach for measuring and documenting the value of completed research. The specific aims of this study are to investigate all possible aspects (e.g., state department of transportation (DOT) organizational structures, state/national transportation missions, research objectives, research attributes such as qualitative or quantitative) to develop a list of research project categories in a hierarchical structure and to prepare the criteria for determining the research types of future projects.
