The Adult's Judgment About Selected Leisure Activities.
Cundiff, O. W.
The central purpose of this study was to determine to what extent views of participation in adult education would be changed if viewed through the eyes of the learner rather than through the eyes of the educator. The study report is comprised of five chapters. Chapter I contains discussions of pertinent literature, problem identification, purposes and implications of the study, and three behavioral measuring devices. Chapter II discusses procedures employed in accepting and developing the behavioral measuring instruments. Chapter III concerns the selection of study subjects, collection of data, and preparation of the data for computer analysis. Chapter IV, which discusses an analysis of data, is organized around a statement of the hypothesis under construction and a description of the statistical treatment used to either support or reject the hypothesis. Chapter V is devoted to a discussion of study conclusions, implications of findings to the field of adult education, limitations of the study, and suggestions for further research. (DB)
