Honors Programs were established on a wide scale in American colleges and universities after the Second World War. Even now, three decades later, an honors program in a College of Agriculture is still more the exception than the rule. Almost equally rare is the evaluation of Honors Programs (Nunnally, 1959; Pilisuk, 1959; Graf, 1962; Ellis and Marquis, 1964; Rochford, 1964). MacLeod (1964) and Tyler (1964) have outlined an approach to Honors evaluation which involves: 1) a search for criteria, beginning with frankly subjective goal statements; 2) a comparison of stated purposes with observation of the program in operation; and 3) increasingly objective evaluation techniques used over increasing spans of time. The evaluation reported here sought to employ the steps outlined by MacLeod and Tyler.
