Evaluation and Evaluation Instrument (1974-1975. Unified Studies Report No. I:5.
The Unified Studies Program (USP) is an innovative program of integrated studies in liberal arts. The program at Boston State College (BSC) is team taught by five faculty members. Because it was an experimental program, the first evaluation was designed to evaluate each component of the program. The questionnaire was divided into sections on background of students, team-teaching, contracts, case study, workshops, Unified Studies Seminars, Content Oriented Seminars, guest speakers, and media series. Based on responses of the students and the results of the first semester's evaluation, a number of changes were made in the spring semester. During the spring semester, the students in the USP were compared to those students in the regular school. An equal number of BSC students were chosen according to the following characteristics: sex, day/evening, number of credits, age, and residence. Results suggested that USP provided the type of instruction that facilitates reading, writing, and research skills and necessitates use of library resources. The students supported the staff and the instructions they received. All the goals set forth in the beginning of the year were attained. (Author/KE)
