Hardin, Henry N.
This is a report of the 1966, eight-week summer institute in the fundamentals of research held at Western Kentucky University. The 45 participants were school administrators, curriculum personnel, and teachers in elementary and secondary schools from 34 school districts in western Kentucky. They were selected on the basis of established criteria for identifying those individuals capable of and in position to render research services to local school units. The institute was designed to help develop research programs by providing preparation in fundamental research methods. The institute program contained two basic elements--a study of research fundamentals, and statistics. An evaluation of the institute indicated very favorable reception for the total program. Written reaction to the institute by participants indicated change in their research awareness, instruction, and graduate commitment. (HW)
