Brief Research ReportEducational Psychology: The Next Generation II
AbstractOne hundred educational psychology Master′s and doctoral students in the New York State region were surveyed in an attempt to answer questions about their career goals and objectives. This paper reports the data obtained which may be useful for career guidance, the study of the profession, and the definition of educational psychology. Among the findings are that both levels of students intend to devote greater than half of their time engaged in academic work such as research, teaching and writing. Additionally, of the many specialty areas in the field, the most popular were cognition and learning, learning strategies, educating special populations, individual differences, and motivation and efficacy. It was surprising that topics of modern importance, such as computer-aided instruction and instructional technology, were not very popular.
