The Development of Three Applied Research Training Programs.
Wolf, W. C., Jr.
A core staff was assembled at the University of Massachusetts in 1966 to establish doctoral level programs to train individuals for applied research positions within the pedagogical community. These programs attempted to develop curriculum and instruction research, research evaluation, and research diffusion competencies. A total of 45 individuals received fellowships over the 6-year project span. The 40 fellows who completed the program are presently employed as follows: 15 accepted college teaching positions, 6 accepted public school administration positions, 6 accepted staff appointments or project directorships within research and development centers, 4 accepted secondary school teaching positions, and 4 accepted combination college teaching/administration positions. Program evaluations revealed the fellows to be better trained for available jobs than most graduate student peers and revealed the programs evolved to be most appropriate for training applied educational researchers.
