Institute for Training Research Workers in Public Education (Athens, Georgia, June 13-August 12, 1966). FINAL REPORT.
Kenney, James B.
The purpose of the Institute was to train key public elementary and secondary school personnel in the Southeastern region of the United States in research methodology, statistical techniques, and electronic data processing as tools for research. The length of the training period was nine weeks. Thirty-seven trainees, all at the graduate level, comprised the group, of which 29 were administrators and eight were directors of research or curriculum supervisors. Instruction was specifically directed to those problems of research which presently exist in the public schools. The training included 57 contact hours in statistics and research, 45 hours in electronic data processing, and 45 hours in a research design laboratory situation, plus small group instruction in the use of data processing techniques for handling data and in unit record equipment operation. Enrollees formulated a research design together with appropriate evaluation techniques which would be made operational upon return to their respective schools. The Institute was declared to be highly successful. (HW)
