Program for Training in Computer and Multivariate Applications to Educational Research. Final Report.
Schoenfeldt, Lyle F.
Three postdoctoral fellows completed a 38-week training program designed to familiarize scientists already experienced in educational research with the techniques of designing and executing a large-scale, long-range educational research project. The program was conducted by the research staff of Project TALENT, a project of the Institute for Research in Education of the American Institutes for Research. Trainees participated in a series of 4 seminars: Project TALENT Seminar, Computer Applications to Educational Research, Statistical Analysis, and Research Methodology Applicable to Large-Scale Educational Research. In addition, each trainee conducted an individual research effort. Among the factors contributing to the success of the program were the interaction between participants and the research community in general, the individualization of the program, and the computer facilities available for trainee use. All 3 postdoctoral fellows have received faculty appointments at institutions of higher education and thus will have an opportunity to contribute to the training of other research workers. Appended are abstracts of the research accomplished by 2 of the trainees and 3 joint papers produced by 2 of them. (JS)
