Researching Crucial Educational Issues in Northern New England. Report on HEW Summer Institute.
New Hampshire Univ., Durham. Bureau of Educational Research and Testing Services.
A 6-week summer training program in educational research was conducted for 30 participants (most of them school administrators or supervisors) from New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine. Morning classes were held in statistical analysis, learning and the educational process, and experimental research design. Afternoon sessions involved group discussions and computer programming. Other activities included field trips, guest lectures, and the development by each participant of a research proposal which had relevance and importance in his home school district or state. The institute was considered successful in accomplishing its major objectives. The 30 proposals show a fair degree of knowledge of statistical techniques by which hypotheses may be accepted or rejected, and trainees were involved extensively in studying modern data processing equipment and reading in the literature of educational research. (Included are reading lists, study material on the research proposal, the statistical exam, and the 30 project titles.)
