A SCHEMATIC ANALYSIS OF EXTENSION COURSE PROGRAMS IN INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER EDUCATION.
BLANCHARD, B. EVERARD
A STUDY OF EXTENSION COURSE PROGRAMS DESIGNED FOR PARTICIPANTS WHO CANNOT ATTEND REGULAR INSTRUCTIONAL CLASSES ON CAMPUS COMPARED MEMBER INSTITUTIONS OF THE NATIONAL COUNCIL FOR ACCREDITATION OF TEACHER EDUCATION (NCATE) AND INSTITUTIONS ACCREDITED BY THE REGIONAL ACCREDITING ASSOCIATIONS (NON-NCATE). THE PARTICIPANT POPULATION WAS INSERVICE TEACHERS, AND CORRESPONDENCE STUDY WAS EXCLUDED. CONCERNS OF THE STUDY WERE TYPES OF EXTENSION COURSES AND THE NUMBER OF ENROLLEES, INSTRUCTOR CHARACTERISTICS, AND CRITERIA FOR EVALUATING COURSES AND LIBRARY MATERIALS USED FOR THEM. QUESTIONNAIRES COVERING THESE TOPICS WERE MAILED TO 443 NCATE AND 757 NON-NCATE INSTITUTIONS, WHICH RESPONDED AT THE RATE OF 62 AND 68 PERCENT RESPECTIVELY, REPRESENTING SLIGHTLY MORE THAN HALF THE NATIONAL TOTAL OF NCATE AND NON-NCATE INSTITUTIONS. A SUMMARY PRESENTS GENERAL COURSE, STUDENT, TEACHER, AND EVALUATION CHARACTERISTICS, AND COMPARES THE TWO GROUPS OF INSTITUTIONS. SO LITTLE DIFFERENCE IS SHOWN BETWEEN NCATE AND NON-NCATE INSTITUTIONS THAT THE AUTHOR RECOMMENDS CONSOLIDATION OF NCATE AND ALL REGIONAL ACCREDITATION ASSOCIATIONS. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN "THE NEW CAMPUS," VOLUME 20, SPRING 1967, AN ANNUAL PUBLICATION OF THE ASSOCIATION FOR FIELD SERVICES IN TEACHER EDUCATION, AND IS AVAILABLE FROM HERMAN D.
