# The Influence of Fisher’s “The Design of Experiments” on Educational Research Thirty Years Later*

@inproceedings{Stanley1966TheIO, title={The Influence of Fisher’s “The Design of Experiments” on Educational Research Thirty Years Later*}, author={Julian C. Stanley}, year={1966} }

When Sir Ronald Fisher died in 1962, in his seventy-third year, the modern experimental statistics devised by him some forty years earlier had influenced research in the physical, biological, and social sciences profoundly. Fisher was a many-talented genius. Putting the design of experiments on a systematic basis was just one of his many major achievements, but it alone would have assured him a prominent place in the history of research methodology. The year 1965 is the thirtieth anniversary of… Expand
