Preconference Educational Research Training Program in Music Education. Final Report.
Carlsen, James C.; And Others
The Music Educators National Conference sponsored a 3-day intensive research training program in 1969 to prepare participants for research in curriculum development and evaluation. Major objectives of the program, in which 222 music educators participated, were to train each participant to be able to (1) write an educationally useful statement of each of the significant kinds of musical behaviors which might be cultivated through education; (2) identify the component parts of a musical behavior required for its operation at a given level of proficiency; and (3) prepare statements of instructional objectives for given levels of competence in specified musical behaviors. Training sessions--lectures supported by overhead transparencies, study of prepared instructional materials, and panel presentations--were preceded and followed by tests which revealed that participants improved in ability to state musical behaviors in selected categories and to identify component parts of musical behaviors. Significant shifts of attitude by participants about the subject matter of the sessions were also revealed. (Seventeen tables concerning the background, abilities, attitudes, evaluations, and recommendations of participants are included.) (Author/JM)
