Report of an Exchange Between the United States and the Soviet Union in the Area of Higher Education.
Feldmesser, Robert A., Ed.
The papers and discussion generated by exchange visits of American and Soviet educators are reprinted or summarized. The purpose of the visits was to exchange information and to study each country's system of higher education. Seminars held in the United States concentrated on two topics: selection and guidance of students in higher education, and the meaning of the undergraduate degree. The topics chosen for the seminars held in the Soviet Union were manpower planning for higher education purposes, and nontraditional forms of higher education. Papers presented in the United States were: Guidance, Selection, and Access to Higher Education in the United States; Methods of Direct (Short-Term) and Extended (Long-Term) Selection of Students for Enrollment in Institutions of Higher Education; American Higher Education and the Bachelor's Degree; and On the Comparability of Levels of Education in the U.S.S.R. and Foreign Countries. Papers presented in Russia were: New Forms of Higher Education in the U.S.S.R.; An Introduction to Non-Traditional Education in the United States; Methodological Issues in the Forecasting and Long-Range Planning of Training of Specialists with Higher Education; and Manpower Forecasting for Work and for Society. Summaries of discussions are also presented. (MH)
