Counselor Research Training. Final Report.
Long, Thomas E.
A two-week research training institute was held to give 25 school counselors experience and training in the following areas: (1) use of data processing equipment, including key-punch, sorter, collator, reproducer, and interpreter; (2) preparation of simple statistical computer programs; (3) use of card and punched-tape input to available computers; (4) use of concepts of central tendency, standard deviation, correlation, chi-square, and t-tests, (5) use of Program Evaluation and Review Techniques (PERT), (6) use of experimental research designs, and (7) use of the ERIC system. The evaluation research carried out after termination indicates highly favorable responses with respect to content, staff, trainees, and budget. The major strength is seen in breadth of exposure to research concerns; the major weakness is seen to be the lack of time. Statistical summaries and samples of all forms are included. (BP)
