A National Television Course: Exposing the Process.
Purdy, Leslie; Icenogle, Darrell
In fall 1975, a project was undertaken to evaluate the effectiveness of the PBS television course "Classic Theatre: The Humanities in Drama" in terms of: (1) the attitude toward and utilization of course materials and prescribed format by participating institutions (153 two-year, and 122 four-year) nationwide; (2) the response to the course by students and the extent to which the course reached a population not previously involved in higher education; (3) the extent of further interest in this mode of humanities presentation. This document reports the progress which has been made on this evaluation. Information from participating institutions is being gathered by administering questionnaires to faculty and administrators, and by making site visits to selected schools. Information from students is being gathered by administering a questionnaire which requests their reaction to the various course components, and the administration of the course. Design and delivery evolution of the course is described, and a preliminary analysis of the survey is presented here, which indicates the considerable diversity in local patterns of utilization of the curriculum.
