Scope and Content Note

(A78-51; A91-66)
This Record Sub-Group contains administrative reports and student progress reports prepared by the administrators of the MU Laboratory School for the Dean of the College of Education. The administrative reports outline the overall activity of the elementary and secondary divisions of the Laboratory School, while the Classification and Educational Progress Reports of Pupils of the University Elementary School include test scores and performance information in both numeric and graphical form for individual students of the Laboratory School. The Classification and Progress report served as a supplement to the annual administrative report for the Laboratory School.

This Sub-Group also includes Reports of summer sessions conducted by personnel of the Laboratory School and student-teachers from the MU School of Education at two Columbia public elementary schools, Lee and Grant schools. These reports contain both administrative and curriculum information as well as individual student performance information. Administrative Reports gradually became more formalized over the period that these records were created, growing from an informal bundling of lists and information on teachers, student-teachers, texts, students, courses and schedules to a more formal and uniform document that included all of the above and included student programs, publications, activities, honor rolls, and graduation ceremony materials. Classification and Progress Reports of Pupils included individual student performance and testing information from 1927 through 1941, when they were discontinued. For a brief period in the 1940s, the Administrative Reports included individual student performance materials but this element largely disappeared after mid-decade.

It will be noted that during the period of time that administrative reports were prepared for the Dean of the School and later College of Education by the administrator of the Laboratory School, the title of the senior reporting administrator changed several times, Principal (1925-1936, 1945-1958), Assistant Director of Training (1936-1941), Director of Training (1941-1945), and Director (1958-1978).
Note to Researcher: For additional information concerning the administration and students of the University of Missouri Laboratory School, see Record Group 8 C, Sub-Group 8. Some of the records in this Sub-Group are restricted and cannot be made available to researchers due to FERPA restrictions, see the restrictions note at the end of this finding aid.

Historical Note:

This on-campus elementary and high school was established to provide classroom experience for teachers in training and as a venue for educational experimentation. The Laboratory School was organized in 1857 and the Teacher's College High School began in 1904. The high school continued operation through 1973; the elementary school continued through 1978. The school was also known as University High and U-High. For a more detailed history of the Laboratory School see A History of the University of Missouri-Columbia College of Education. The university sponsored summer schools conducted from 1924-1936 at Lee and Grant elementary schools, "operated for the purpose of providing a suitable place and adequate teaching situations for research students in elementary education and also to show those interested in remedial instruction just how and what may be done in the fundamental subjects."

Series Descriptions:

This Record Sub-Group is divided into three series. Series One contains annual administrative reports prepared by the Laboratory School administrator for the Dean of the School and College or Education or the Director of Training (1925-1978) and is arranged chronologically.
