|dc.description.abstract||In doing this this thesis I had the privilege of working with
the Danforth Foundation in its evaluation of the total experience
derived at Kalamazoo College. The greater emphasis was placed
on the four years of academic experience in completion of the
requirements for an undergraduate degree. The part of the evaluation
which I was concerned with was simply to develop a system of computer
programs by which I could analyze the questionnaires which the
Danforth study had devised and had filled out by the faculty and
students. Specifically, I dealt with the Student Questionnaire for
the class of 1966 and the Faculty Questionnaire.
I have written this paper so that people with a minimal
knowledge of the computer and its operation can understand what I did. My discussion is at first concerned with the questionnaires.
This includes a statement of objectives in designing them,
the types of analysis outputted in my program, and a part discussing
how the analyzed summary data was used to fulfill the objectives of
the questionnaires. Because the types of analysis identify so closely
to the subprograms which I used in my program I discuss the subprograms here instead of in my section on the program itself.
In this next section after discussing the master program I
have felt it important that I relate the difficulties which I
encountered and how I dealt with them. In the last section for the reader's complete understanding
I have explained the input and ouput, included a listing of the
program in Fortran, and provided the procedural flow charts which
show the logic of the master program and subroutines.
As an appendix I have included an informative introduction
to our 1620 computer and its operation along with its various
