HIGHER ADULT EDUCATION--ITS PRESENT AND FUTURE, ANALYSIS AND PROJECTIONS BASED ON SIX YEARS OF PROGRAM AND REGISTRATION DATA, 1960-1966.
FRANDSON, PHILIP E.
THIS IS THE SECOND TIME-SPAN (1960-1966) DESCRIPTION AND ANALYSIS OF PROGRAM AND REGISTRATION DATA FOR MEMBER INSTITUTIONS OF THE ASSOCIATION OF UNIVERSITY EVENING COLLEGES AND THE NATIONAL UNIVERSITY EXTENSION ASSOCIATION. AMONG THE RELIABILITY LIMITATIONS OF THE DATA WERE FLUCTUATIONS IN THE NUMBER OF INSTITUTIONS REPORTING, QUESTIONS AS TO THE ACCURACY WITH WHICH THE DATA WERE CLASSIFIED IN TERMS OF PROGRAM TYPE AND CREDIT TYPE, AND THE INABILITY OF CERTAIN INSTITUTIONS TO PROVIDE ALL OF THE REQUESTED DATA. BECAUSE OF THE DIFFICULTY OF ASSESSING THE RELATIVE IMPORTANCE OF VARIABLES WHICH ACCOUNT FOR THE INCREASE IN PROGRAMS, REGISTRATIONS, AND STUDENTS, IT WAS NECESSARY TO COMPUTE ADJUSTED PERCENTAGE INCREASES. DATA ARE INCLUDED ON AVERAGE NUMBER OF PROGRAMS AND REGISTRATIONS, PERCENTAGE INCREASES IN PROGRAMS, CREDIT TYPE (DEGREE, NONDEGREE, AND NONCREDIT), FORM OF COURSES (CLASS, CONFERENCE, AND CORRESPONDENCE STUDY), SUBJECT CATEGORIES, AND PERCENTAGES OF MEN AMONG THE CLASS AND CORRESPONDENCE STUDENTS. REGISTRATIONS IN ADULT HIGHER EDUCATION DURING 1960-2000 IN RELATION TO POPULATION ARE PROJECTED. THIS DOCUMENT IS ALSO AVAILABLE, FOR $2.00, FROM THE OFFICE OF THE EXECUTIVE SECRETARY, ASSOCIATION OF UNIVERSITY EVENING COLLEGES, UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA, NORMAN 73069. (LY)
