An Analysis and Interpretation of Tasks and Competencies Required of Personnel Conducting Exemplary Research and Research-Related Activities in Education.
Anderson, Ronald D.; And Others
There is a void in existing knowledge concerning specific tasks performed by researchers, developers, diffusers, and evaluators and the specific competencies required of them in performing educational research and research-related tasks. The work reported in this document is the analysis and interpretation of data obtained in interviews as outlined in a University task force technical paper. Specific objectives were to identify and delineate, in part empirically: (1) functions (roles) that are required of research and research-related personnel, (2) specific tasks that are required in the performance of each function identified, and (3) competencies (skills and knowledge) necessary to perform each task identified. Factor analysis was used to isolate 12 task factors, factor analysis and additional empirical-logical procedures were used to identify seven competency factors, and relationships between task factors and competency factors were identified.
