Institute for Training Minority Group Research and Evaluation Specialists II.
New York Univ., NY. Inst. of Afro-American Affairs.
The Institute for Training Minority Group Research and Evaluation Specialists II consisted of 3 elements: (1) a 6-week graduate course at New York University during the 1971 summer session for 15 minority group individuals to provide training in research design, statistics, data collection and analysis, and report writing; (2) the inclusion of 3 professors from predominantly black institutions to act as professional research associates in the Institute in order to assist black colleges to develop staff expertise in research training; and (3) a workshop at the 1972 AERA meeting for the participants of the summer workshop to provide opportunities for them to reinforce and supplement their research skills and to attend meetings at the convention. Evaluation of the program indicates that the program was successful in that 13 of the 15 participants are doing some work in educational research and exhibited a moderate rate of retention of theoretical research and statistical principles 6 months after the summer workshop.
