Berkeley Unified School District, CA. Asian American Bilingual Center.
This performance report of the Summer Institute for Advanced Study on Educational Research for Asian Americans describes and evaluates the activities conducted from November 1, 1978 through October 31, 1979. The primary object of the project was to increase the participation of Asian Americans in the field of educational research and development. Specifically, the project sought to establish an informal communication network among researchers interested in educational research, to create a forum for the exchange of knowledge and discussion of challenging problems, and to increase the research skills of the participants. A chronological report of activities is provided. In July of 1979, an institute was held on the Berkeley campus of the University of California. Lectures, seminars, and special presentations were offered to the 24 participants during the institute. An internship program immediately after the institute allowed nine interns to gain practical research skills in research organizations. A participant list is included. The second part of the report summarizes the evaluation procedures and results. Evaluation data were collected through questionnaires from the lecturers and the participants. The institute's objectives were achieved. Overall, the participants rated the institute good or excellent. (Author/RM)
