Minorities and Women in Educational Research: Progress Toward Equality. Final Report.
American Educational Research Association, Washington, DC.
This report evaluates a project to pilot-test workshop materials designed to facilitate increased participation of women and minorities in educational research and development. The pilot test involved three NIE/AERA sponsored workshops organized in conjunction with the 1980 annual meeting of the American Educational Research Association. The piloting was in preparation for seminars to be conducted later in 1980 in Puerto Rico, Virginia, and California. Participants in the pilot workshops were selected to represent Blacks, Hispanics, Native Americans, Asians, and women. Workshop topics were (1) The Researcher in a Political World, (2) Research Project Development and Management, and (3) Research Methods and Evaluation. Formal and informal data were collected for formative and summative evaluation purposes. A general conclusion is that the seminar objectives should be clarified prior to delivery of training sessions. Overall, the seminar received favorable ratings. Included in this report are summaries of workshop content, methods of participant selection, and evaluative comments by participants. Extensive appendices include promotional announcements, letters to applicants, workshop agendas, a list of participants, summary data from evaluation questionnaires, and general comments about the workshops.
