Interdisciplinary Program and Research Experiences for the Preparation of Educational Researchers.
Howe, Trevor G.
This report described an Iowa State University program which trained educational researchers in a 3-year graduate program leading to the Ph.D. degree. The program provided trainees with research training in two complimentary areas of specialization: (a) educational and psychological measurement and program evaluation; and (b) educational research in computer supported learning. Each trainee was encouraged to plan, develop, experiment, implement, conduct, evaluate, and disseminate educational research in his area of specialization. The program was interdisciplinary in nature, thereby providing utilization of staff, resources and facilities. Courses in research design, methodology, statistics and computer use in research were offered to supplement courses in education. Practicum research experiences were also provided. The report contained a list of the program's graduates and their places of employment. Letters of evaluation by former students were also included. (Author/BRB)
