Needs and Expectations: As Seen by Students in an Academic Up-Grading Programme.
Webb, Bradley M.
The purpose of this study is to examine and assess the expectations, needs and opinions of educationally deficient adults on their returning to school for academic upgrading. The hypothesis to be tested is that programs of academic up-grading for adults, which belong to a new field and suffer many of the uncertainties that pervade all fields of education, may be proceeding on wrong assumptions regarding student needs. Respondents were all at grades 9 and 10 equivalencies and were in the third to seventh month of the course of study. A questionnaire was completed by class groups with explanatory assistance being given by the author. In general, the answers to the questionnaire give support to the hypothesis tested. (CK)
