Carpet in Andrews High School. A Report by the Carpet Evaluation Team.
Wallace, Morris S.; And Others
In the spring of 1965, the Board of Trustees of Andrews Independent School District entered into a contract with the carpet evaluation team to analyze and evaluate the use of carpeting in the Andrews Public Schools, with emphasis on the senior high school. The two $5,000 grants served as the basis for paying for the expenses and professional services of the evaluation team and publication of its report. The report is a series of research investigations attempting to shed light upon the educational outcomes and cost of carpeting in the Andrews Independent School District. A major area was assigned to an interested and qualified professional person or persons who designed the investigation and gathered and interpreted the data for the area of assignment. Areas covered include--(1) evaluating the classroom setting, (2) the effects of carpeting upon teaching and learning, (3) carpet utilization in Andrews, Texas, Senior High School, with respect to measured achievement and capacity of students, (4) carpeting and the learning environment, (5) carpeting in the school library, (6) a bacterial evaluation of carpet versus resilient flooring, (7) a study of flooring costs, Andrews High School, and (8) carpet in schools--a brief review of the literature.
