A Program of Training in Research and Evaluation. State Department of Education--Ohio.
Wysong, H. Eugene
In 1966 an intensive 5-day workshop was held to assist professional staff in the Ohio Department of Education in gaining skills in educational research and evaluation procedures and techniques. The 32 participants were administrative, supervisory or consultative personnel, and the training was intended to help them to communicate with each other and with other educators in the Department. The program covered general research techniques (objectives and criteria, types of educational research, delimitation and definition of problems, statement of hypotheses, and problems of data collection); research methodology and design (types of research methods and designs, methods of data collection, and sampling plans); and evaluation techniques (nature and purpose of measurement, review of descriptive statistics, statistical inferences, and testing hypotheses). Follow-up meetings were held to apply the techniques learned in the workshop to current research problems facing the participants. The majority of the participants considered that the program met their expectations and was helpful to them. The document includes a detailed statement of research problems and hypotheses used in the workshop, as well as the program announcement, evaluation summary form, and registration form. (MBM)
