A Pre and Post Test Evaluation of the English 3--Library Instruction Program at UCLA.
Kaplowitz, Joan
Pre- and posttests were administered to approximately one-third of the students (241) who participated in the University of California at Los Angeles' (UCLA) English 3--Library Instruction Program. The program's effect on the students' library related behavior was evaluated, and changes in library usage, attitudes toward libraries and librarians, and understanding of basic library skills were studied. Statistical analysis of the data indicated that students scored significantly higher on the posttest than on the pretest. This suggests that the program is benefiting the students at UCLA and is an effective way of offering bibliographic instruction to every student enrolled at UCLA. This report, a synopsis of the full report by the same title, includes a description of the UCLA library system and the English 3--Library Instruction Program; a discussion of the methods used to conduct the pre- and posttest evaluation; the results (including three tables showing mean scores for all subjects, upperclassmen only, and non-participants); and a general discussion of the study.
