A Study of the Operational Feasibility of the Apprenticeship Work-Study Program for Multi-Site Tryout and Evaluation: Final Report.
Melnotte, Judith M.; And Others
This study reports the results of an evaluation of the operational feasibility of a new model for training personnel for educational research and development. Also, recommendations are made for future testing of the concept on a larger scale. The evaluation attempts to identify practical aspects of the pilot program which could be modified, maintained, or improved. A total of 14 key questions were investigated in such areas as achievement by apprentices, apprentice reaction to the program experience, the host institution's reactions, the degree to which the training program and experience could be exported, and suggestions for other types of models. Although a number of model modifications were recommended, it is concluded that the pilot training program was successful and effective. In addition, it is felt that variations of the model developed can be of use in independent training programs as an adjunct to regular academic programs or for inservice training. The inservice model is recommended as the most immediately viable for educational research and development training efforts. (Author)
