Davis, Patricia K.; And Others
General College Studies, v5 n3 1975-76
This document gives the history of the three offerings of the University of Minnesota General College experimental course "Images of Women in Literature," and provides an evaluation of the third offering of the course in winter 1975. Steps taken to evaluate the course included: (1) the development of a course syllabus in consultation with General College literature instructors, and instructors involved with women's studies at the University of Minnesota; (2) design and administration of survey instruments to assess the level of attainment of the eight course objectives; (3) a comparison of the demographic characteristics of students enrolled in the class to those of students enrolled in "Man's Religious Beliefs"; (4) administration of pre- and post-tests to determine changes in the extent to which students demonstrated an increase in knowledge of women in literature, the history of the women's movement, and the contribution of women to society; (5) administration of pre- and post-tests to measure student attitudes toward women. The results of these evaluation processes are presented, along with a description of the teaching methods employed in the course. Appended are 25 detailed tables of evaluation data. (NHM)
