Course files

This sub-series consists of records documenting the content and evaluation standards of courses offered by the School. Records include course outlines and descriptions; directed studies proposals; reading lists and slide lists; examination, assignment and essay questions; lecture schedules and outlines; memoranda and instructors' reports. For some courses in the performing arts, instructors' evaluations of students have been preserved as evidence of evaluation methods. Some teaching material has been retained (e.g. glossaries, lecture notes), but reprints of articles have not been preserved. The sub-series does not include course administration records (e.g. enrollment lists, grade lists, book requisition forms, grade change forms, registration status reports, waiting lists, add / drop forms, lab fee notices, student directories). Note that record types found in the files vary considerably from course to course.
