1971 AERA Research Training Sessions. Final Report.
Byers, Joe L.
This is a report of a 5-day research training session held in New York City from January 30 to February 3, 1971 under the sponsorship of the American Educational Research Association (AERA) with support from the U.S. Office of Education. The purpose of the training session was to develop and improve research competencies of individuals engaged in counseling, counselor education, and related research. The program purpose was implemented in two primary aims: developing the participants' understanding of systems research principles and concepts, and helping participants acquire proficiency in systems research skills and techniques. Twenty-two trainees were selected to participate in the training session. Program activities included didactic instruction, individualized and group activities, and supervised practice. Immediate evaluation using internal criterion measures revealed attainment of program objective at or near performance level. Follow-up will be conducted to assess long-range results. Program evaluation indicated satisfaction with all aspects of organization and administration of the training session, with the exception of allocation of time and physical facilities toward which the participants did not show consensus as to satisfaction. Appendixes include related program material. (Author)
