Survey for Comparison of Effectiveness of Home Management with Residency Versus Home Management Without Residency Laboratory, 1966-1968. Final Report.
Dunn, Dorothy F.
In order to evaluate resident and non-resident experiences in relation to a home management program, questionnaire responses were solicited from a select group of home economics graduates. Based on analysis of data collected by questionnaire, it was found that 84 percent of the resident group and 60 percent of the non-resident group stated that, given the opportunity, they would still enroll in the same home management course. Reasons given by the residents who would change were adjustment of schedules for marriage, money, and part-time employment. Further, 40 percent of the non-residents would now select the resident course because they thought they would learn more. Among the several suggestions for program improvement offered by the respondents is that individual and group projects for both resident and non-resident students be improved. (Author/JS)
