A Research Training Institute for Junior College Personnel. Final Report.
Hochman, Irvin; Lang, Gerhard
The objectives of the institute were (1) to encourage excellence in education research, both institutional (self-study) and action (practice), (2) to have the staff and trainees evaluate the program, and (3) to distribute its findings to junior colleges interested in improving their own research. A followup of the trainees and their research was a subsequent objective. This report fully describes the organization and content of the training program, the daily schedule or activities, the background of the trainees, the methods, instruments, and use of statistics for educational research, the statistical laboratory, and requirements for completion of the institute's course. It lists the guest speakers (with synopses of their talks), site visits, the trainees' tests, and the evaluation instruments. It then analyzes the evaluation of the institute by objectives, content, staffing, trainee characteristics, organization, strengths, weaknesses, and unique features. The report also comments on the USOE's administration of this educational research training program. Eleven appendices give details on all aspects of the program. (HH)
