Student Reaction to Components of a Graduate Seminar in Educational Research.
Blum, Stuart H.
Student reaction to a one-semester course in educational research, a required course in the master's degree program in teacher education at Brooklyn College of the City University of New York, was obtained through administration of a questionnaire from 1965 through 1973. Students most valued lecture and question sessions on writing style, form and organization, and computational procedures for research papers. Students least valued discussion of hypothetical research problems. Class discussion of individual projects was rated in between. It is suggested that students may have felt more comfortable with the more explicit or traditional type of presentation. An important value of the course is acquiring the tools to become more discriminating consumers of research. For most of the students, the expectation is to conduct comparatively little formal research in their professional roles in the schools. (SW)
