Educational Research Training Center. Final Report.
Staats, William D.
The Educational Research Training Center has trained 54 professional educators in a period of 5 years. It employed a consortium of four universities and 20 public and parochial school districts to accomplish research needed by the member institutions and to train research personnel for the member school districts and universities. Trainees, representing both masters and doctoral degree students, conducted research in a 13 county area of Ohio. Although there were some management problems, the trainees achieved the program objectives; the school system benefited from the research and trained personnel; and the universities developed professional staffs in educational research and created new cooperative relationships among the participating universities, and among the universities and public and parochial school systems. The report includes details of the original and revised program objectives, the program procedures, core courses and faculty changes at the four participating universities, trainees, practicum training arrangements, the academic calendar, and an evaluation of the program.
