'O' and 'A' Level examinations in history : a content analysis, its implications for teaching and for the reform of the G.C.E. syllabus

Inglis, William F. J. January 1978 (has links)
The InterdIsciplInary and exploratory nature of thIs thesis has made It difficult to write. The thesIs is InterdIscIplinary in the sense that it touches on a number of broad areas of study. The methodology which was adopted, In partIcular the use of content analysis and of certaIn statIstical processes rests on a knowledge of psychology. The category system which is made up of a number of types of hIstory could only be constructed after an extensIve consideration of the nature of history. The discussIon of the case for and agaInst the current syllabus,and the proposal for a new alternative syllabus at '0' and 'A' level (see Chapters 13 and 14), draws mainly on an understanding of the theoretical debates about the teaching of history which have occurred since the Second World War. FInally throughout the thesis references are made to the evidence and Ideas put forward by historians about particular periods of history. The thesis Is also exploratory.· The findings which are reported arise from the use of a category system drawing on the different types of history developed by hIstorians. No other researchuhas attempted to create such a broad category system, to assess Its valIdIty and reliability and then to employ It to code material dealinq with extensive periods of British and European history. At the same time the arguments, whIch are employed to defend and to attack the existinq syllabus (see Chapter 13), and to construct the outlines of a new syllabus (see Chapter 14), had to be created almost ab initio, since the dominance of particular types of history. both at university and school level. has not been debated extensively. either by historians. or by those writers. who discuss the teaching o f h·I story. These two asoects of the thesis have had a number of reoercussions. First of all vast topics have had to be discussed in a cursory fashion. For example all the arguments for the inclusion or exclusion of oartlcular types of history in the category system had to be reviewed in one chapter. a few pages being devoted to each of the types of history. Secondly maior themes and arguments relating to the nature of history. and to history teachinQ. have had to be exemplified with disturbing brevity. Thus the debate over the impact of oarticular types of history on the community(l) had to be illustrated by a small number of examples when the whole thesis could have been devoted to the discussion. Thirdly. and finally. the wide ranging nature of the thesis has made it impossible to conduct the exhaustive study of every aspect of the subject which would have been appropriate had the topic been more narrowly defined. However. despite these disadvantages. it is to be hoped that this interdisciplinary and exploratory study will throw light on a vital area of the history syllabus in schools.

Research findings suggest clear differentiation of institutional identities through time. Before 1978 when China embarked upon a process of ambitions reform efforts, the typical image of a university was 'a university of the masses', which actually relegated them to a 'tool' for the powers that be. After the Cultural Revolution, universities adopted the role of a 'frontier' and a 'national builder'. However, with the presence of the state and its tight ideological control, universities around that time were labeled as 'socialist universities' under the leadership of the party. Since 1992, universities have become increasingly involved in the market as the 'market economic system' has been developed and China has become more active in the global economy. The logic of the market and its mechanisms are no longer novel to universities. A trend forward corporatization can even be identified in the higher sector. / Since the late 1970s, higher education has undergone significant reform across the world, from the Western countries to the Chinese Mainland. In the Chinese Mainland, a central theme in higher education reform has been the debate on the construction of organizational forms for higher institutions. / The concept of 'identity' is adopted as the focus of research. Organization theorists believe that an organization, like a person, has an identity in modern society. Organizational identity, moreover, is closely related to the state and the market. It is argued that an organizational identity is usually constructed as a result of the interaction between the institution, the state, and the market. In this context, the change and re-constitution of the identity of Chinese universities are explored. This study adopts the nattative approach and Peking University is selected as the case for study. / The major underpinning of the study is that China is still---by centralized administration. Between 1949 and 1978, the characteristics of universities were mainly constructed between the state and universities in the presence of a planned economic system and the absence of a market. Since the implementation of which the market was introduced to the higher education as a spere for exploration, the state has remained the most important and the most powerful 'stakeholder'. Thus, many characteristics of the corporatization of Chinese higher education differ from those in the West. Some superficial, or even distorted forms of corporation can be identified in China. However, little significant change has taken place in terms of the organizational structure and administration governance of higher institutions. (Abstract shortened by UMI.) / The purpose of this study is to explore what has happed to universities under reform and to depict the universities present today. It is hoped that the study can contribute to our understanding of the kind of change that have affected universities, and to help us reflect on past decisions, policies, and incidents. Dicusions change will further illuminate the complex relationships between the state, university and the market. / 羅雲. / 論文(哲學博士)--香港中文大學, 2006. / 參考文獻(p. 133-149). / Advisers: Nai Kwai Leslie Lo; Wing Kwong Tsang. / Source: Dissertation Abstracts International, Volume: 68-03, Section: A, page: 0907. / Electronic reproduction.
