School-based research has undergone considerable advances during the 1980s. However, the field is still faced with a lack of clear direction regarding numerous research design issues. The purpose of this article is to provide a brief history of the evolution of school-based research and to present a perspective on six key issues currently challenging the research community. They include: unit of design and analysis, intention-to-treat approach, cross-sectional sampling of units, precision of comparisons, process evaluation, and multiple comparisons.
