Statistical Methodology for Educational Research. Final Report.
Hartley, H. O.
This 1966 Summer Institute for training educational research workers in statistical methodology attempted to convey concepts of statistical and analytic techniques, to provide instruction and experience in the use of high speed computers, and to guide trainees in the selection and application of techniques to their research work. The first session (June 6-July 15) was attended by 31 researchers actively engaged in secondary school education; 22 remained through the second session (July 19-August 12). During each session trainees attended morning classes in statistical techniques; afternoon classes were in behavioral research methodology (first session only) and computer laboratory work with an IBM 7094 and several IBM 1401 computers. A Problems Seminar was added in the second session. Trainees and faculty members, who were professional statisticians as well as subject matter specialists from social, behavioral, and computer science departments, offered suggestions for program improvement through an evaluation form. (Summary data on publicity, applications, trainees, program director's attendance, and finances are included.) (LP)
