Design of a Survey for Determining Training and Personnel Requirements for Educational Research, Development, Dissemination and Evaluation. Vol. 2, Development Pretest of Questionnaires. Final Report.
This study describes the development and design for pretesting survey instruments required for the development of programs sampling the supply and demand for educational research, development, diffusion, and evaluation personnel. The major areas of concern include: 1) the determination of number, distribution by type, and location of educational R-D-D-E personnel; 2) training requirements including areas of training, previous experience, and employer-employee training needs; 3) recruiting and selection information; and 4) planning training program content. The survey will be conducted on a national probability sample basis and give a more definitive picture of current trends regarding R-D-D-E personnel. The estimates can serve as projections for the R-D-D-E personnel and budget needs. Appendixes include American Education Research Association questionnaire, pretest employer and employee questionnaires, revised employer and employee questionnaires, and finally the cost of preparing and mailing questionnaires for field test. (Related document is SP 005 630, a design for a biennial survey which would provide a nationwide, in-depth sampling of supply and demand for educational research, development, diffusion, and evaluation personnel.)
