First Year Knowledge Acquisition in the Humanities.
Bragg, Stephen M.; Farland, Ronnald W.
The Paracollege at St. Olaf College is an experimental program in which students participate in a self-directed study curriculum where no grades are given and students work at their own pace. This document presents the results of a study designed to find out the varying degrees of general knowledge obtained by students in each program after 2 years of college. Results show that women performed better than men within each curricular program and Paracollege students performed better than regular St. Olaf students regardless of sex. The conclusions are based on a sample of 510 regular students and 575 Paracollege students taking the Humanities Area Test. (HS)
