Preference Patterns of Education Students in Pass-Fail Electives.
Metzner, Seymour; Sharp, Richard M.
This study investigated whether pass-fail elective options at the undergraduate level will encourage education majors to break away from previous patterns of elective choice and choose more courses in various scientific and mathematical disciplines. Two hundred sixty-three education students at Queens College of the City University of New York were identified as electing pass-fail option courses. Analysis of these choices revealed that only 14 students elected courses in scientific or mathematical areas, thus leading to the conclusion that the institution of pass-fail options holds little promise for developing greater scientific or mathematical sophistication among prospective teachers.
