Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. Office of Institutional Research and Analysis.
This report provides registration data for six Hawaii community colleges (Honolulu, Kapiolani, Kauai, Leeward, Maui, and Windward) for fall 1981. Following introductory material outlining changes in study methodology, tables provide data for 1977 through 1981 on course registration by campus; average class size by program and campus; and the number of classes with fewer than ten students, by campus. Next, tables present a course registration summary by program for 1981; the number of classes and average class size by program for 1977-1981; and student semester hours (SSH) and course full-time equivalent (FTE) by program for 1977-1981. Finally, information is provided by individual college on registration by program; number of classes and average class size; SSH's and course FTE; and classes with ten or fewer students. Highlights of the report include: (1) an increase in all course registration measures (e.g., courses, classes, student and instructor contact hours, and course FTE) to their highest level in five years; (2) a less substantial increase in course registration measures (4% to 6%) than in student enrollments (7%); (3) greater increases in the number of general education courses (7%) than vocational education courses (1%); (4) a maintenance of the average class size at 24 students for the system as a whole; and (5) an increase in the number and proportion of classes with ten or fewer students.
