TRAINING FOR EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH.
BUSWELL, GUY T.; AND OTHERS
THE FACTORS WHICH LEAD TO PRODUCTIVITY IN EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH WERE STUDIED. THE PROGRAM WAS DIVIDED INTO FOUR SECTIONS--(1) AN ANALYSIS OF QUESTIONNAIRES FROM 818 PERSONS RECEIVING DOCTORAL DEGREES IN 1954, (2) AN ANALYSIS OF A PREVIOUS STUDY OF 1,750 PERSONS RECEIVING DOCTORAL DEGREES IN 1964, (3) A STUDY OF DISSERTATIONS OF 1,598 PERSONS RECEIVING DOCTORAL DEGREES IN 1964, AND (4) A STUDY OF THE BACKGROUND, TRAINING, AND VARIOUS OTHER ASPECTS OF 31 OUTSTANDING SCHOLARS. INTERVIEWS WERE ALSO CONDUCTED TO STUDY THE GENERAL CLIMATE AND CONDITIONS UNDER WHICH PRODUCTIVE SCHOLARS WORK. BEFORE FINAL RECOMMENDATIONS WERE SUBMITTED, 16 CONSULTANTS WERE INVITED TO OFFER CRITICISMS AND SUGGESTIONS AT A 2-DAY CONFERENCE. TWELVE FINAL RECOMMENDATIONS WERE MADE AND ACCEPTED. THE CONCLUSIONS INDICATED THAT RESEARCH SHOULD BE PROBLEM CENTERED AND CONDUCTED BY INTERDISCIPLINARY TEAMS WHO CAN ATTACK MAJOR PROBLEMS WITH THE INTELLECTUAL AND SCHOLARLY RESOURCES OF AN ENTIRE UNIVERSITY BROUGHT TO BEAR ON THE PROBLEM BEING STUDIED.
