Summer Institute for Educational Research on Asian and Pacific Americans. Final Report (November 1, 1980-October 31, 1981).
Berkeley Unified School District, CA. Asian American Bilingual Center.
The activities and tasks of a summer institute are summarized and evaluated in this report. The goal of the institute was to increase the participation of Asian and Pacific Americans (APA) in the field of educational research and development. Specifically, the institute provided an opportunity for participants to exchange ideas and common concerns and to establish an informal network of researchers interested in APA education. Lectures, seminars, and workshops were offered at the 12-day institute, which was held at the University of Hawaii in Hilo from July 9 to 16, 1981, and at the Kamehameha Schools in Honolulu from July 17 to 24. There were 35 participants. The following seminars were offered: qualitative research methods; quantitative methods in educational research; educational research issues on Asian and Pacific Americans; grantsmanship; language assessment; social policy analysis and educational research on Asian and Pacific Americans; and research and evaluation in multicultural education. Evaluation data were collected through questionnaires. The overall evaluation of the institute was very good and the institute's objectives were accomplished. The appendices contain a news release, application brochure, schedule of events, and the complete evaluation report. (Author/RM)
