Hillegas, Milo B.

Milo B. Hillegas - 1925
In recent years the problems of the elementary school curriculum have begun to overshadow all others connected with the public schools.Attention to the subjects that should be taught in the public schools is not limited to those individuals and organizations that are directly concerned in school affairs. Numerous national, state, and local associations have educational committees, and from these committees there flows a constant influence that is felt by school officials. The bibliographies of recent books, articles, and pamphlets that deal with the curriculum are very large.

Milo B. Hillegas - 1924
It is the purpose of this chapter to present various features of methods as they exist in the schools of the United States. Often there will be wide discrepancies between accepted theories and current practices. It is true that the great majority of our teachers are controlled by conceptions that do not conform to those now held by the leaders in education.

Milo B. Hillegas - 1918
Scattered throughout Vermont are communities so small that there are not sufficient boys and girls to warrant the establishment of a regular high school.

SECTION 2. THE SCALE This scale for the measurement of quality in English composition by young people has been derived by methods that are described in the following pages.

Milo B. Hillegas - 1912
SECTION 3. WHAT THE SCALE MEASURES The scale is composed of sample English compositions, the qualities of which have been determined by more than four hundred competent judges. The values which are assigned to the various samples express their quality in the same sense, though not as accurately, as milimeters express the lengths of lines.

SECTION 4. THE LOCATION OF THE ZERO POINT IN ENGLISH COMPOSITION91 The location of the zero point for merit in English composition by young people is of importance in order to allow the "times as much merit" judgment.

Milo B. Hillegas - 1912
SECTION 5. THEORY OF THE METHOD EMPLOYED IN DERIVING THE SCALE Nearly five hundred individuals judged one or the other of the sets which contained the samples used in the scale. Each person was asked to arrange the samples in order of merit. This amounted to a request that each sample should be compared with every other sample in the set.

Milo B. Hillegas - 1912
SECTION 6. THE SAMPLE COMPOSITIONS FROM WHICH THE SCALE WAS DERIVED The first step in the derivation of the scale was the collection of about seven thousand English compositions by young people. These were obtained from various sources and represent a definite attempt to obtain particularly the very poorest and the best work that is done in the schools.

Milo B. Hillegas - 1912
More than one hundred individuals worked with the set of eighty-three samples. Some, however, did not understand the directions and some made such serious mistakes in recording their results that it was possible to use only seventy-three of the records.

Milo B. Hillegas - 1912
The question of what individual or group of individuals represents the best judges of English composition is a difficult one to answer. The data at hand do not show any marked differences between the various sets of judges so far as uniformity of judgment is concerned or faithfulness to the proper order of the samples.

Milo B. Hillegas - 1912
Two methods of selecting samples from which a scale might be derived are possible. The first is to take only compositions that would be classified as narration or as description. The second method is to pay no attention to such distinctions; rather to make the effort to include all the various types. Either method is good. In this study the effort was made to include all types except poetry.

SECTION 1. INTRODUCTION Every attempt to measure the efficiency of instruction in a school system or to evaluate different methods of educational procedure serves to emphasize the importance of standards. Proper standards would make it possible to compare with certainty the work done in one school or system of schools with that done elsewhere.

Milo B. Hillegas - 1912
No claim is made that the values given in the scale are absolutely accurate. Variation among the judges was very great, and to make a perfect scale would require the services of many more judges than it was possible to secure for this study.

Milo B. Hillegas - 1912
The method employed in selecting the samples that were placed in the second set was given in the preceding section. The set is reproduced below except that samples 519 and 520 were not included in all of the sets judged
