Summer Institute for Educational Research on Asian Americans. Final Performance Report (February 1, 1980-October 31, 1980).
Berkeley Unified School District, CA. Asian American Bilingual Center.
This performance report of the Summer Institute for Educational Research on Asian Americans summarizes and evaluates the activities and tasks completed from February 1 through October 31, 1980. The goal of the project was to increase the participation of Asian Americans in the field of educational research and development. Specifically, the project sought to enlarge the informal network established by the 1979 summer institute participants, to create a forum for the exchange of knowledge and the discussion of challenging problems, and to increase the research skills of participants. Fifty Asian Americans participated in the institute. Four courses were conducted: qualitative/quantitative methods in educational research; research on bilingual education; quantitative methods in policy analysis; and language research in education. In addition to the courses, special guests and participants gave presentations and a grantsmanship workshop was held. An internship program placed participants in educational research and development organizations to gain practical experience. Evaluation data were collected through questionnaires. In general, all participants felt that the institute was well organized and the experience worthwhile. The objectives were accomplished. The appendices contain a participant list and the complete evaluation report. (RM)
