Cooperative Graduate Program for Training in Educational Research. Final Report.
Miller, Paul VanR.
The Cooperative Graduate Program for Training in Educational Research at Lehigh University continued for the fourth year during the grant period of September 1, 1969 through August 31, 1970 without substantial change. The program objectives were 1) to prepare students to function effectively as specialists in educational research and measurement in the public schools, to evaluate educational programs, to initiate and carry out studies and report findings in a clear and objective fashion, and to act as research resource persons to other professionals in the schools they serve; 2) to foster an intelligent dependence on research as a means of making educational decisions on the part of school personnel and to have them look to the university and its graduates for guidance in relevant situations; and 3) to qualify trainees for the Ed. D. degree with a specialty in educational measurement and research. During the 12-month period of the grant, 12 trainees were supported by federal funds in the doctoral program. Of the 12, all completed the course work requirements, met all the examination requirements, and satisfied the residence requirement. Four received the Ed.D. degree. Of the balance, all but one were engaged in writing the dissertation, and it was anticipated that the degree would be awarded in 1971 in seven of these eight cases. (MBM)
