Home Economics


The writer of this thesis deals with three types of schools that are being granted subsidy and supervised by the State Department of Home Economics in Texas. The experiments herein are based upon tests written and published by a group of graduate students at Columbia University in 1932 and were revised by the writer to the form used in this study. It is hoped that these tests will present a practical use of them for Homemaking students and teachers. Home Economics at the present time ranks in the curriculum with any High School subject, whereas, many years ago it was considered a novelty, present-day educators have seen the prevailing trend; which is a demand for trained women in the field of homemaking. It is to be understood that the writer's purpose is neither to criticize any particular test, nor to favor any in the field of Home Economics, but to reveal the purposes of various home-making tests that are used in the High Schools.
