During the program the trainees: (1) acquired the ability to read, analyze, interpret, and evaluate educational research; (2) acquired the basic concepts and techniques necessary to initiate and conduct research projects in education; (3) acquired the prerequisite knowledge and skills appropriate to graduate work in educational research; and (4) designed, conducted, analyzed, and reported a research project. The Towson Program was restricted to 15 trainees. The academic year began September 15, 1966 and ended May 31, 1967. The summer portion of the program was from June 12 to July 28, 1967. (Author/DE)
