Institute in Research Design and Evaluation. Final Report. (November 20-26, 1968).
Chase, Clinton I.
This report describes a 1-week institute designed to upgrade research and evaluation skills of persons associated with PL 89-10 Title I and Title III projects. The institute's objectives were to illustrate and provide experience in: (1) operationalizing objectives of instructional programs; (2) designing projects with appropriate controls to allow valid observations of change; and (3) constructing and applying observational tools, besides standardized tests, appropriate for assessing outcomes of instructional programs. Of the 23 participants, 70% evaluated their change in ability by responding to a postsession questionnaire. In general, respondents indicated that they had either "improved somewhat" or "improved greatly," their ability to deal with the topics of the institute. The appendix includes copies of the institute program, a list of institute participants, and pre- and postsession questionnaires administered to the participants. (JH)
