The future of higher education: some speculations and suggestions by Alexander M Mood( Book )

15 editions published between 1973 and 1975 in English and held by 815 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After an extensive study of the effective use of resources in colleges and universities the author offers some suggestions that envision radical rearrangements of higher education. Among his ideas are the following: (1) entrance requirements should be eliminated; (2) colleges and universities should be open to everyone the first year, and all youths should take their first year of college in residency away from home; (3) learning after the first year should be recurrent and interlaced with career experience; (4) institutions of higher education should be fully financed by tuition; (5) higher education should abandon its certification function; (6) more attention should be given to assisting students to make appropriate career choice; and (7) lectures for standard courses should be broadcast over national or regional tv by university consortia.

Cost-benefit analysis of education by Alexander M Mood( Book )

4 editions published between 1967 and 1970 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Difficulties are encountered when cost-benefit analyses are applied to education. There are problems in the attempt to define an educational goal and in the analysis of educational processes. The federal government is now engaged in a multitude of projects designed to coordinate research in educational improvement. This entails continued development of educational, information gathering systems where budget programing is extensively used. A third problem arises in the measurement of costs. Despite difficulties involved, optimism exists toward the prospect of developing a comprehensive quantitative model of the american educational system. This paper was presented at the washington operations research council's cost-effectiveness symposium (2d, march 13-14, 1967). (hw)

A study of the attitude toward life of our Nation's students by George W Mayeske( Book )

2 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of the present study was to determine: (1) How much the development of a student's attitude toward life was affected by different aspects of his achievement and family background; and (2) How the part played by these factors compared with that played by different aspects of the school he attended. We constructed an index that reflected the student's attitude toward life. A High score on this index demoted in the importance of hard work rather than luck as an ingredient in success, and in the availability of education as a means to a better life. It also measured the student's belief that people like himself had a chance to get ahead without sacrificing their personal identity or integrity. The principal finding was that the highest scores on this index were obtained by students who were white. Next highest were Oriental-American students, followed by Negroes, Indians, and Mexican-Americans in a tie for third place. Puerto Ricans last. In studying differences among individual students, we found that the family background, achievement, and school factors played a greater role in the attitude toward life of minority group students than in that of white students. The student body's attitude toward life was more important than any school characteristic. (Author)

A Study of our Nation's schools by George W Mayeske( Book )

3 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Utilizing a data base obtained from a survey commissioned by Congress in 1964 and carried out in 1965, this study attempted to discover what characteristics of the nation's schools are most closely related to school outcomes. Methods were devised by which school influence could be distinguished from social background influences. A five percent stratified cluster sample was taken from a population consisting of the students, teachers, principals, and superintendents of the nation's public elementary and secondary schools. Since one of the purposes of the study was to determine the educational opportunities of minority groups, strata with higher percentages of nonwhites and other minority groups were sampled more heavily. One of the principal findings of the study was that the influence of the school cannot be separated from that of the student's social background. Additionally, the study found that the common influence of the school and the student's social background exceed either of their distinguishable influences. Other findings are discussed, and conclusions are drawn. (Author/JF)
A study of the achievement of our nation's students by United States( Book )

2 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study seeks to discover which aspects of a student's background, alone or in combination with the kind of school attended, play the greatest role in achievement. The paper presents results of a wide variety of analyses that explore different aspects of family background and the school as they relate to achievement of students of differing racial-ethnic and sex-group membership and geographical origin. The individual student is the primary unit of analysis. The principal finding is that, although factors of home and family greatly outweigh school factors in achievement, all the differences in achievement associated with racial-ethnic group membership can be accounted for by considerations that are social in nature and origin. The greatest role is played by a set of motivational factors that are closely related to child rearing practices. The most important are: (1) the expectations that both the student and his parents have for his school performance; (2) the extent to which families engage in activities that are supportive of these expectations; and (3) the student's understanding of the importance of hard work to success, as well as the possible benefits of an education.
