THE DEVELOPMENT OF PROFESSIONAL PERSONNEL IN EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH, VOLUMES I AND II.
MILLIKAN, NANCY H.
THIS STUDY WAS UNDERTAKEN TO IDENTIFY OPPORTUNITIES THAT MAY EXIST FOR RESEARCH PREPARATION IN GRADUATE INSTITUTIONS, TO EXAMINE THE INSTITUTIONAL AND TRAINING ARRANGEMENTS THAT MAY BE RELATED TO OUTPUT OF RESEARCHERS, AND TO INVESTIGATE THE POTENTIAL COMMITMENT OF RECENT DOCTORAL RECIPIENTS TO EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH. DATA FOR THE STUDY CAME FROM TWO MAJOR SOURCES--(1) DATA COLLECTED BY THE WRITER, INCLUDING CONTENT ANALYSIS OF THE CATALOGUES OF 110 GRADUATE INSTITUTIONS, CASE STUDIES OF SELECTED RESEARCH ORGANIZATIONS, AND INTERVIEWS WITH 20 INDIVIDUALS, AND (2) DATA ALREADY EXISTING, INCLUDING INSTITUTION SURVEYS, QUESTIONNAIRE SURVEYS OF BEHAVIORAL SCIENTISTS, AND QUESTIONNAIRE SURVEYS OF THE 1964 DOCTORAL RECIPIENTS IN EDUCATION. CONCLUSIONS OF THE STUDY INCLUDE--(1) PRODUCTION OF RESEARCHERS IS HIGH WHEN THE INSTITUTIONS HAVE RELEVANT ORGANIZATIONAL CHARACTERISTICS, WHEN THE ORGANIZATIONS HAVE A SYSTEMATIC APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM, AND WHEN RESEARCH ORGANIZATIONS PROVIDE A HIGH INDEX OF SCHOOL SERVICES, (2) THERE IS A NEED FOR RESEARCH ORGANIZATIONS TO DEVELOP THEIR OWN ARRANGEMENTS FOR RESEARCH ACTIVITY AND TRAINING, (3) INDIVIDUALS WHO SPEND AT LEAST SIX YEARS IN TEACHING ARE NOT POTENTIAL RESEARCH RECRUITS, (4) DOCTORAL RECIPIENTS TEND TO UNDERTAKE RESEARCH ACTIVITIES DURING THE FIRST YEAR FOLLOWING DEGREE RECEIPT, (5) THERE IS A NEED FOR IMPROVED RECRUITMENT PROCEDURES, AND (6) EDUCATION RESEARCH IS, IN FACT, AN ACADEMIC PURSUIT.
