Boston College's Center for the Study of Testing, Evaluation and Educational Policy (CSTEEP) has received a two-year grant of $530,000 from the Spencer Foundation for the Drawing on Education project, which will explore and document how drawings can be used as an alternative method for assessing and examining educational practice in schools.

Western Kentucky University, in the spring of 1999, will become the first institution of higher learning to offer a course in the history of American jazz dance via the World Wide Web. Assistant professor Bob Boross will teach a three-credit course titled Jazz Dance History beginning January 1999, in which the evolution of American jazz dance from African origins to Broadway and the concert world will be explored.

It is expected that the class enrollment, open to any college-level student who has a computer and Internet access, will be national and possibly international in scope. Students enrolled in other schools may transfer their WKU credits back to their own universities.
