Standards in Graduate Work in Education. Bulletin, 1921, No. 38
Koos, Leonard V.
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
The standards and educational practices of all higher institutions are scrutinized now as never before in history. For the most part these examinations relate chiefly to undergraduate and professional schools and colleges. It is, however, important that the graduate divisions in universities should lead the way with superior requirements and standards for graduate work. In this field the committee on standards of the Society of College Teachers of Education, under the direction of Professor Leonard, V. Koos, of the University of Minnesota, has done some pioneer work by conducting an investigation of the graduate standards and practices in college departments of education. The study reveals valuable information which should be brought to the attention of the higher institutions in this country. Following a introductory section detailing the scope and method of the Study," topics presented in this bulletin include: (1) Admission and prerequisites; (2) Residence requirements; (3) Credit requirements; (4) Distribution of the work; (5) The administration of courses in education; (6) The thesis; (7) The foreign-language requirement; (8) Examinations; and (9) The staff. (Contains 16 tables and 6 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
