Preconference Educational Research Training Program in Music Education. Final Report.
Petzold, Robert; And Others
The 1970 Preconference Educational Research Training Program (RTP) provided three 3-day sessions of intensive research training for a total of 160 music educators from across the country. The primary purpose of the RTP activity was to provide music education researchers and users of research with intensive training in three major areas (1) experimental design; (2) measurement theory and evaluative techniques; and (3) the analysis of complex musical behaviors and planning behavior-oriented learning episodes. Through formal instruction, the training program offered an initial introduction to the background and problems associated with each of these three broad areas, and then provided an opportunity for extensive participant involvement in specific tasks and learning exercises. Evidence obtained from pre- and post-test measures of participants demonstrated considerable improvement in dealing with the topics which had been discussed, and highly favorable shifts in attitudes by participants toward the content of the sessions. (The report includes 38 tables, and appendices of conference memos, lists of participants, and instructional schedules and materials.) (Author/MF)
