Guidelines for continuing education programs for women are provided by Ruth H. Osborn, Helen O. Wolle, Abbie O. Smith, Marjorie M. Parks, and Marian S. Cosgrove. Chapter one outlines elements and issues of the administration of such programs: philosophy, program structure, management (staff selection, development, accreditation, research), and administrative procedures (budgeting, recordkeeping, materials and equipment). Chapter two is devoted to counseling services: identifying populations, assessing community needs, options in curriculum development for various groups and needs, counseling service administration, and counseling techniques. The third chapter focuses on program development: elements of program planning and design, such as needs assessment, community contacts, collecting materials, and organizing an advisory board; selecting courses; personnel issues, such as instructor orientation, establishing rapport with adult learners, and classroom control; scheduling, registration, and recordkeeping; and financial considerations (class size, salaries, and fees and costs). Evaluation services are the subject of chapter four; a variety of individual tests are outlined, their administration discussed, and program and other evaluation functions (research, financial aid, and placement) are briefly noted. Chapter five addresses issues and types of community services, such as reaching the public, student services, and creating services for special populations. Sample charts and forms are appended.
