used by some individual instruc-
tors to help improve their teach-
ing. Others simply ignore them-
it depends on the type of person
an instructor is."
In addition, departments use
them in various ways to evaluate
a faculty member's teaching, one
of three criteria used in deciding
promotions. In some departments
these questionnaires are the prin-
cipal means of evaluating teach-
ing, Prof. Briggs commented.
"If a teacher is good, then the
chances are high that a large
number of his students will say
so on the questionnaires. Con-
sequently, departments are able to
determine to a limited degree
which instructors to promote on
the basis of outstanding teaching.
"Teachers also use these forms
to help evaluate their teaching
fellows. At times teaching fellows
have even been removed from their
job because of faulty teaching
brought to light by the form. Us-
ually, most of those who do poorly
with classes lack interest in teach-
ing, so they welcome the change
as well as anyone," he said.
Prof. Briggs emphasized that
the dissatisfaction with, and tem-
porary discontinuation of, the
questionnaires does not mean the
concept is being abandoned.
"If they can give a teacher the
information he needs to improve
his teaching, they improve edu-
cation on the whole. But the bet-
ter the forms are, the more use-
ful they become."

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the
third in a series of articles on the
Curriculum Development Program
in Juvenile Delinquency being car-
ried on under a federal grant by
professors in the social work school,

By JOHN KENNY
Educational achievement and
the behavioral problems of chil-
dren in low income areas is the
basis for an extended study by
Prof. Henry J. Meyer and Prof.
Eugene Litwak of the social work
school.
Their research attempts to de-
termine "how the school and the
community can best interact to
produce children with educational
achievement a n d motivation,"
Prof. Litwak explained.
Working on a $87,000 grant
from the federal Office of Educa-
tion and a $38,000 grant from
President Lyndon B. Johnson's
Committee on Youth and Delin-
quency, Professors Meyer and Lit-
wak formally began the project in
July, 1962.
Field research has centered on
Detroit schools. Eighteen elemen-
tary schools in Detroit-12 in the
inner city area and six in the
outer city area-were studied.
In each of these schools 85
fifth and sixth graders-a total of
1,530 children-were interviewed
by the professors.
In addition all the teachers-
528-in these 18 schools were con-
sulted. The families of the chil-
dren have also been interviewed.
