MANLEY, CHARLES A.
A STUDY ATTEMPTED TO IDENTIFY CERTAIN CHARACTERISTICS OF THE EXTENDED DAY PROGRAM AT SAN FERNANDO VALLEY STATE COLLEGE AND EVALUATE THIS PROGRAM IN COMPARISON WITH THE REGULAR DAY PROGRAM. DATA WERE OBTAINED FROM COLLEGE RECORDS AND THREE QUESTIONNAIRES COMPLETED BY EXTENDED DAY STUDENTS AND FACULTY. EXTENDED DAY STUDENTS WERE DIVIDED ACCORDING TO SEX AND HAD A MEDIAN AGE OF 32 YEARS. THE MAJORITY WERE MARRIED, WORKING FULL TIME, AND ENROLLED IN SIX CREDIT HOURS OR LESS. THE FACULTY WAS PRIMARILY FULL TIME AND HAD DOCTORAL DEGREES. NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE WAS FOUND IN THE ACADEMIC BACKGROUNDS OF FACULTIES. THERE WAS NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE IN GRADE DISTRIBUTIONS, BUT THERE WERE MORE STUDENT WITHDRAWALS FROM EXTENDED DAY CLASSES. COMPARABLE ACADEMIC STANDARDS WERE MAINTAINED BUT FACULTY SPENT MORE TIME COUNSELING DAY STUDENTS AND PREFERRED THE SHORTER, MORE FREQUENT CLASSES. MORE WORK WAS REQUIRED OF REGULAR DAY STUDENTS AND STUDENT PERSONNEL SERVICES WERE CONSIDERED SUPERIOR IN REGULAR DAY SESSIONS. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT, IN GENERAL, THE EXTENDED DAY PROGRAM WAS COMPARABLE WITH THE REGULAR DAY PROGRAM. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE FROM UNIVERSITY MICROFILMS, ANN ARBOR, MICH. ORDER NO. 62-930.
