Abstracts for the 11th Annual Convocation of NERA.
Northeast Educational Research Association.
The Northeast Educational Research Association (NERA) hosted 10 sessions in November 1970. Papers presented at Session 1 dealt with special education (mentally retarded children, intelligence tests and figure orientation). Session 2 highlighted reading (initial teaching alphabet, Frostig subprograms on perception and the disadvantaged in regard to reading) and Session 3 focused on higher education. Session 4 was devoted to teacher perceptions (urban teachers, pre-service education and student-centered teaching); Session 5 solely to the study of the disadvantaged. Design and measurement topics included in Session 6 ranged from item analysis of criterion-referenced tests and stimulus standardization for individualized learning systems, to the scoring of creativity tests by computer simulation. Problems in measurement were dealt with in Session 9. Self-concept (review of research to relationship between creativity, social and academic acceptance) was treated in Session 7 and administration models, policies and influences in Session 8. The final session focused on facets of guidance and counseling papers. The NERA conference also included a number of symposia covering a wide range of topics. (CK)
