Summary

This report describes the development and implementation of a 2-year program designed to prepare 32 undergraduates for roles in educational research. An evaluation of the program's success is made on the basis of the following five major objectives: (1) To develop competencies necessary to conduct educational research, (2) to develop favorable attitudes toward educational research, (3) to prepare prospective teachers for their roles as participants in and as consumers of educational research, (4) to interest talented undergraduates in graduate work and careers in educational research, and (5) to provide talented assistants for faculty researchers. The major activities of the program are also evaluated, including a weekly seminar on research methods, work with a faculty member as a research assistant, and visits to various research settings. The appendix contains (1) the course outline for the seminar, (2) a bibliography of research products in which the trainees participated, (3) excerpts from program evaluations made by student and faculty participants, and (4) papers by two trainees describing their involvement in the research process. A related document is EA 002 688. [Table I may reproduce poorly due to marginal legibility] (JH)
