RFP 70-12: A Design of New Patterns To Train Research, Development, Demonstration/Dissemination, and Evaluation Personnel in Education. Vol II: Scope and Developmental Process of the Training Program. Final Report.
Southwest Educational Development Lab., Austin, TX.
The training consortium described in Vol. 1 of this report (SP 005 047) determined national needs for RDD&E personnel. The training program designed to meet these needs has three areas of objectives: materials development, training, and program development. Forty-eight training modules would be used individually in various agencies for evaluating and training approximately 100 individuals by January 1973 and 350 individuals by July 1974. The full system, which should be operational by January 1974, consists of four subsystems and 48 instructional modules with an additional internship experience lasting from 1 to 6 months. The program is designed to meet the needs both of college students and presently employed personnel in educational agencies. It utilizes six interrelated steps: 1) context analysis, 2) conceptual design, 3) product design, 4) pilot test, 5) field test, and 6) marketing and diffusion. The diagnostic subsystem has been designed to assess both agency and individual needs, accomplished by a number of interview or questionnaire devices. Both placement and management subsystems will be developed in order to provide the necessary monitoring of trainees and their effective placement at the end of the program. Evaluation will provide more exact data on the possibilities of diffusion of the program, and a final report covering all aspects of development, evaluation, cost, and diffusion recommendations will be made at the completion of the operational training system. (SP 005 047 and SP 005 049 are related documents.) (MBM)
