Graduate Research Training Program. Final Report.
Towne, Douglas C.
The Graduate Research Training Program began in 1966 as a 3-year doctoral level program which recruited about 25 interns from fields other than education. In 1969 it was changed to a 1-year masters-degree program for 10 interns, about half of whom had majored in education. The 1-year program in 1969-70 included formal course work in research, independent research projects on school dropouts conducted cooperatively with the Knoxville School System, seminars on analysis of research reports and computer programing, and a trip to the American Educational Research Association convention. Of the nine students who completed the program, four continued graduate study, and four took positions in the field of education. Although many problems were encountered in the training program, the project director felt that the experience acquired would be valuable in designing future programs. (RT)
