Women's colleges in the United States : history, issues, and challenges by Irene Harwarth( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the role of women's colleges in the United States from the early 1800s to the present. It reviews how they began, how they changed as more colleges became coeducational, and the legality of publically supported single-sex colleges. The book also looks at what women's colleges are like today and examines differences in institutional effects for students who choose to attend women's colleges versus those who attend coeducational institutions. The four chapters, written by different authors, are titled: (1) "Women's Colleges in the United States, a Historical Context" (Elizabeth DeBra); (2) "Women's Colleges in the United States, Recent Issues and Challenges" (Irene Harwarth and Florence Fasanelli); (3) "Women's Colleges in the United States, a Statistical Portrait" (Irene Harwarth); and (4) "Women's Colleges in the United States, An Overview of Research and Questions for the Future" (Mindi Maline). An appendix contains 18 tables with data on enrollment by size and type of institution, by geographic region, and for selected years; degrees awarded; staffing at private 4-year colleges by occupational category, sex, and Carnegie classification; and average salary of full-time faculty at women's colleges by sex and Carnegie classification. (Contains 100 references.) (Ch)

"The Impact of Educational Reform on Vocational Education" (Marion Asche, Donald E. Elson, Ann Echols, Arthur Williams) examines primary strategies of reform and reform in vocational education (ve). "Contextual Learning: a Review and Synthesis" (Nancy Karweit) summarizes the cognitive science perspective, differentiates general and context-specific knowledge, and discusses cognitive apprenticeships and contextual learning. "Integrating Academic and Vocational Education: a Review of the Literature, 1987-1992" (Cathleen Stasz, Tessa Kaganoff, Rick Eden) considers the integration mandate and the current status, observed outcomes, and future directions of integration practice. State and district-level policies regarding secondary- and postsecondary-level ve are explored in "Integrating Academic and Vocational Education: Progress under the Carl Perkins Amendments of 1990" (W. Norton Grubb, Cathy Stasz). "A Literature Review for Tech Prep" (Gerald C. Hayward, Carolyn J. Dornsife, Debra D. Bragg, James L. Hoerner, Darrel A. Clowes) outlines tech prep's economic and educational context, essential features, and development and implementation.

The quality of vocational education : background papers from the 1994 National Assessment of Vocational Education( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document contains five papers. "Vocational Teacher Education in U.S. Colleges and Universities and Its Responsiveness to the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Applied Technology Education Act of 1990" (Richard L. Lynch) documents the trend toward decreasing enrollments in teacher training programs in virtually all vocational fields. "Occupational Experience as the Basis for Alternative Teacher Certification in Vocational Education" (Richard L. Lynch) establishes that occupational experience is an inadequate substitute for formal teacher preparation in vocational education. "Curricular Tracks and High School Vocational Education" (James A. Kulik) demonstrates that most of the difference between vocational and academic students' test scores is due to students' characteristics rather than the nature of vocational education. "The Impact of Academic Course Work on Labor Market Outcomes for Youth Who Do Not Attend College: a Research Review" (Adam Gamoran) documents the importance of a solid foundation in basic academic skills. "The Effect of High School Vocational Education on Academic Achievement Gain and High School Persistence: Evidence from nels:88 (National Education Longitudinal Study of 1988)" (Kenneth A. Rasinski, Steven Pedlow) suggests that the benefits of vocational education for high school completion may occur by improving students' success in courses. (Mn)

Green) explores trends in computer-based education among colleges and universities and opportunities and problems they face as they move into computer-based learning. "Learning Tools within a Context: History and Scope" (Charles N. Darrah) describes computer-based learning opportunities available via the World Wide Web and discusses how social contexts of users may affect use of the medium.

(Thomas Edgerton) provides an overview of Sun Microsystems philosophy and approach to computer-based learning for its employees. "Summary of the Workshop" (Beth A. Bechky) suggests future research questions. "Conclusion" (Nevzer G. Stacey) highlights themes that emerged from the workshop. (Ylb)

A New college course map and transcript files : changes in course-taking and achievement, 1972-1993 ; based on the postsecondary records from two national longitudinal studies by Clifford Adelman( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document presents a national tapestry of what is studied where, and by whom, in U.S. colleges, community colleges, and postsecondary trade schools. The "Map" is based on empirical information from national samples of postsecondary transcripts in two national longitudinal studies, the National Longitudinal Study of the High School Class of 1972 (nls-72) and the High School and Beyond/Sophomore Cohort (hsb/so). The cohorts of the hsb/so were scheduled to graduate from high school in 1982. Participation in postsecondary education expanded considerably during the period from 1972 to 1993, but the rate of completing any credentials by age 30 did not increase. The rate of bachelor's degree completion declined in the same period, as did the rate at which bachelor's degree recipients entered graduate or professional school. Time-to-degree increased by 7%, and the average number of credits earned by students also increased. The document has seven major sections: (1) "Making the Map," a description of the methodology; (2) "Degrees, Majors, Credits, and Time," a study of the long-term educational attainment of both cohorts; (3) "The Changing Shape of Delivered Knowledge," the taxonomy of courses derived from the samples; (4) "Who Provides?," The distribution of attempted courses by institution type; (5) "The Empirical Core Curriculum," a study of student course taking; (6) "Changes in the Proportion of Students Earning Undergraduate Credits in Specific Courses," an analysis of changes in student credits; and (7) "Undergraduate Grades: a Complex Story," the analysis of student achievement. Two appendixes contain technical notes and notes on data sources. (Contains 12 tables and 38 references.) (Sld)

Learning and earning : analysis of HEA Title II-B Graduate Library Fellowship Program recipients, fiscal years 1985-1991 by Janice Owens( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report summarizes a descriptive survey of fellowships awarded under the Library Education and Human Resource Development Program, Title ii-b of the Higher Education Act of 1965. The study covered the years 1985-91 and was undertaken to determine the success of the fellows who were recruited into the training program, and to determine if their training enabled them to enter the library profession or re-enter with enhanced skills to further their careers. During the 7 years covered by the study, 88 doctoral, 17 post-master's, and 223 master's fellowships were awarded. Overall, the study revealed that 93 percent of the fellows received or will receive their degrees. There were no significant differences in the completion rates of males and females and between minorities and nonminorities. Seventeen tables provide data on sex and gender; post-training status; the number of fellows by degree sought, race, and gender for each of the 7 years; the number of fellows recruited by training level and post-training field of employment, and yearly funding results.
