The Process of Analyzing and Evaluating a College of Education Curriculum Course.
Fields, Lynette; Lee, Ann M.
The purpose of this study was to analyze an undergraduate curriculum course that was a required component of the core program of the College of Education. Each year several faculty members of the Department of Educational Leadership taught the course in 50 sections. Over the years, the changes by various faculty members resulted in wide variations of content, methods, strategies, and materials. The goal of this study was to analyze and evaluate all elements of the course to make recommendations for changes that would be consistent for all sections and faculty members. Methods focused on a strong triangulation to examine all elements of the undergraduate curriculum course. Surveys, oral and written interviews, and analysis of content material were used to produce more than 20,000 pieces of data. Recommendations were made to the department for changes in course goals, objectives, and content. Final changes will be adopted by the department as a whole. (Contains 5 tables and 30 references.)
