Cornejo, Ricardo J.; Rodriguez, Ana Maria
Project ASSERT, an experimental project conducted at San Diego State University (California), was designed to prepare, demonstrate, and disseminate strategies to increase the participation of women and minorities in education research. The program trained faculty researchers in advanced research methodologies and provided practitioners with research skills. The training program for faculty researchers was a series of special projects symposia led by well-known researchers in education and other disciplines. Faculty researchers were given fellowships to pursue research on issues that affected minorities and women. Training for the practitioner participants consisted of intensive study and instruction from the faculty researchers, who acted as their mentors. Practitioners were given research associate internships. Research areas addressed by the practitioners are listed and described. Appendixes contain: (1) the selection procedures for mentors and practitioners; (2) material on research workshops and courses; (3) research load assignments; (4) a list of four symposia topics; (5) a sample of an article written about the project; and (6) names and addresses of participants.
