Educational Research Training Programs: Requirements for Admission.
Fleury, Bernard J., Jr.; Cappelluzzo, Emma M.
This study aimed to ascertain the relationship between entrance requirements for graduate level training programs in educational research and the trainee's success in completing or gaining reappointment to the program. An extensive review of the literature is followed by presentation of data gathered from 525 questionnaires representing 60 of the 85 programs in this field. 5 criteria for admission were included: 1) standardized test scores; 2) previous academic background (major and minor fields of study; 3) previous grade-point averages; 4) professional educational experience and/or certification; and 5) age at date of admission. It was concluded that the entrance requirement profiles were not effective predictors of success of program completion for the group of research trainees included in this study. The entrance requirement variables effectively predicted success only about 15 per cent of the time. Further research is suggested.
