Women in Continuing Education.
Rosenwood, Linda M.; Lunneborg, Patricia W.
This evaluative research project represents an attempt to assess the effects the University of Washington's women's continuing education program has upon participants. Brief instruments to measure self-image, attitudes toward women, problem-solving ability and career orientation were constructed and administered to registrants and nonregistrants who served as controls. The program's impact was limited to a significant rise in self-esteem. Methodological difficulties (low test reliability, small sample size, etc.) may account for the lack of other differences, but it is suggested that the program reconsider its goals and how to accomplish them more effectively.
