Abstract:This collection consists of academic course evaluations, which provide a comparison between Georgia Tech's course subject content in the semester and quarter systems.

Biographical/Historical Note

Georgia Tech had adopted a trimester school calendar during World War II, made up of three 16-week semesters per year, to accommodate students serving in the war. Near the end of the war, while most of the other colleges and universities in the Georgia system had adopted the quarter system, Georgia Tech remained with the trimester structure. President Van Leer advocated the quarter system as part of Tech's postwar curricular reform. The quarter system was approved for Tech by the Board of Regents in the fall of 1945, and it was scheduled to begin in the fall of 1946.

Scope and Content Note

This collection contains evaluations, which were produced by the Registrar's Office in March 1948. These evaluations compare the course subject content in a semester system versus a quarter system.
