Abstract: The purpose of this study was to assemble, classify, analyze, and evaluate the contribution of research in television which was completed by graduate students in speech and cognate fields during the two-year span 1968-69. This was done in order toi (l) fill a gap in the existing literature on the assessment and criticism of television research; (2) refine future research in television by identifying research territory already covered, and by suggesting new directions for this research; and (3) help define the place of television research within the speech field. A master list of data to be analyzed was drawn from recent indices of graduate research by students in speech and related fields. Abstracts of 102 theses and dissertations on this list were then either extracted from existing sources or from the studies themselves as they were secured through interlibrary loan. Content and method categories of classification were then established and applied to the collection of abstracts, and the results of the classification were analyzed to determine the general nature of the body of research.
