An Analysis of the Results of a Student Questionnaire Evaluation of a Ninth-Grade Language Arts Minicourse Program.
Strand, Melvin L.
The purpose of this study was to determine the reactions of ninth-grade students to a three-week language arts minicourse program offered for three consecutive years at a junior high school in Minnesota. The students registered each year for one minicourse from a selection of approximately six. The courses were primarily activity centered and were developed with considerable input by the students. An anonymous student questionnaire was completed at the end of the minicourse to evaluate the program. Several phases of evaluation revealed that according to students the program objectives were being met, the majority of students agreed with positively stated items regarding the program and disagreed with the negatively stated ones, and 55% of the participants agreed that the class needed a greater variety of activities.
