Special Training Project in Research in Music Education (March 11-14, 1968). Final Report.
Carlsen, James C.; Petzold, Robert G.
A 4-day training project for 51 music education professors was designed to increase their orientation toward systematic research, to improve their competence to train doctoral candidates as systematic researchers, and to improve their own competency in conducting research. Opportunities for small-group activities were interspersed with large-group lectures on research design and statistical anslysis. Pre- and posttest results indicated that specific competencies in planning, conducting, and analyzing experiments had been improved. Participant questionnaire evaluations registered positive reactions to content and presentation, encouraging the staff to conduct similar sessions in the future. Appended are publicity materials, a list of participants and staff, table of contents of the instructional materials book designed for use in the program, the pre- and posttest Term Familiarity Test with statistical analysis of the results, and the trainee evaluation questionnaire.
