During the faU semester of 1962-63, Mrs. Nash enroUed in Measurement and Evaluation in Business Education at UNC-G. The course was being taught by Dr. Mathilde Hardaway, author of the text for the course. At this time Dr. Hardaway was in the process of revising her book, Testing and Eval uation in Business Education. The first edition included examples of standardized tests; however, in her next edition she was to use teacher made tests because of their more frequent use in classrooms. Thirteen students were enroUed in the class, and each student was responsible for a project. Mrs. Nash used as her project, an exhibit showing students' ability to construct aU types of test questions. The class on a whole was to be concerned with final examinations for a semester in any area of business education. Mrs. Nash was later informed that her project was to be included in the revised text book by Dr. Hardaway. This alone was an honor, for Mrs. Nash had no teaching experience, and this was her first encounter with school since her graduation in 1957 with a business education major. Included along with the work is recognition of Mrs. Nash's contribution to the book. As an undergraduate, Mrs. Nash was a member of Pi Omega Pi, Alpha Kappa Mu, and Kappa Delta Pi — aU honor societies; and she graduated with highest honors.
