I am currently seeking individuals to work as data collectors for my dissertation study. The study involves the administration of the Individual and Growth Development Indicators and the administration of a new early literacy tool called the TOPEL with preschool aged children (3 to 5) in two local school districts. Some brief volunteer data collection experiences are available, however most individuals would be paid hourly at 10-14 dollars, based on experience. Data collection will occur from September 17th to October 13th. Some data collectors will be provided the opportunity to continue on with the study as paid collectors.
5, 1 hour long training sessions will be provided for those who are hired in to learn the IGDI measures on both September 13th and 14th. Data collectors must attend one of these sessions to learn the tools.
Data collection is fairly flexible. Preschools hours of attendance occur in two blocked sessions of 9:30-11:30 am and 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. M-F. Data collectors may chose what times they are available and what days, however a minimum of 1.5 hour block must be available for each collection period.
Data collectors will be expected to give approximately 9 hours a week, however more hours will be available for those who wish to give more time, and less for those hired that have significant challenges in their schedules. Data collectors must provide their own transportation to and from the local school districts in which data collection will occur.
Please contact Alisha Wackerle at firstname.lastname@example.org or 651-675-9894 if you are interested.
Have a great day!

The Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA) is inviting proposals for the Summer 2006 semester for two of it’s Community Based research programs: Neighborhood Planning for Community Revitalization (NPCR) and the Community Assistantship Program (CAP).
CURA Community Based Research Programs provide applied research assistance to community-based groups located outside of the Twin Cities area, neighborhood groups within the metro area, and other nonprofit agencies and groups. This research is administered by three separate programs: the Community Assistantship Program (CAP), which works with groups in greater Minnesota; Neighborhood Planning for Community Revitalization (NPCR), which works with neighborhood organizations in Minneapolis, St. Paul, and first-ring suburbs; and Communiversity, which works with nonprofit organizations, particularly those serving communities of color (NOTE: Communiversity does not have a summer round of projects). These community research projects typically place students in part-time research assistantships for one semester or over the summer. Students are selected by and report to the community organization. Organizations define and direct their research projects.
The goals of these programs are to:
1) enhance the capacity of community-based groups in Minnesota to meet their goals by giving them an opportunity to accomplish relevant applied research; and
2) provide students and faculty with useful community-based applied research and learning opportunities.
See below for more information on NPCR and CAP. Applications should come directly from community organizations. The deadline for project proposals is March 30th, 2006. Approved projects will run from May 29th to August 28th, 2006. Please follow the link below to find out more or to apply on-line.

I am currently a doctoral student of Bruce Wampold, who suggested that I write to you to ask for your assistance. I recently re-located to the Twin Cities while in the midst of collecting data for my dissertation. As a result, I am looking to recruit five local graduate students to learn and use a coding system that I am developing for maternal interviews. The time commitment is approximately 40 hours and the stipend is $300. Do you know of any students who might be interested in the project?
