Mid-South Undergraduate Research Training Program. Final Report.
Fortune, Jim C.; And Others
The objectives of the program were to develop personnel capable of (1) upgrading existing educational curricula through research, (2) seeking better educational practices through empirical knowledge in the use of research techniques to improve classroom instruction, (3) applying research methods to provide insights into sociological problems related to educational practice, and (4) utilizing research and evaluation techniques to improve educational practice. The program consisted of four three-credit courses, a practicum seminar in which students worked on projects, and a required course in a specialty area such as teacher training, reading instruction, or special education. GPA, progress, and postprogram placement data are provided on the students enrolled in the program. Course information includes copies of tests administered and reading lists. An appendix contains a report of two team projects conducted by the class, one dealing with the effect of the particular week day and test administration, and the other dealing with test development.
