Evaluation of a Course for Women in Educational Administration.
Shakeshaft, Charol; And Others
To address the differing experiences and needs of women who are potential administrators and to examine the barriers to their success, the Hofstra University Department of Educational Administration initiated an intensive workshop called "Women in School Administration" in 1980. The authors begin this evaluation of the workshops by discussing the need for the course and the internal and external barriers facing women administrators. They describe the course's implementation, give a demographic profile of its participants, and list its three objectives: to increase participants' level of self-concept, produce growth in their long- and short-term career goals, and help them move into administrative positions. Evaluation of the course included tests of participants' ego development immediately before and after the workshops, surveys of career goals and job status during and one and two years after the workshops, and participants' written evaluations of the course. The evaluation data indicate the course succeeded in improving participants' self-concept and in changing their career goals and administrative positions. Appendices provide the course syllabi for 1980-1982, evaluation instruments for ego development and goal and job changes, and the course evaluation forms. (RW)
