Arkansas State Dept. of Higher Education, Little Rock.
This document reports data on full-time equivalent (FTE) enrollment and student semester credit hour (SSCH) production in Arkansas' state higher education institutions for 1987-88 in 7 figures and 29 tables. Data on FTE enrollment show it rose 2 percent over the previous year, the second consecutive increase in FTE enrollment with most of the change occurring at the undergraduate level. Trends in SSCH production at state universities over 5 years show increases in communication, education, foreign languages, basic skills, and protective services. At public two-year institutions SSCH production has increased in social sciences and visual and performing arts. A section on SSCH offers tables showing production by discipline from 1983-84 through 1987-88, by occupational codes and programs, and by public 2-year institutions' production by discipline for 1987-88 and for 1985-87 through 1987-88. The report also includes data briefs analyzing trends in basic skills or remedial education. State legislators have mandated testing, standards, and remedial education programs. There are also data briefs on education, engineering, and foreign languages. Appendices provide institutional SSCH production tables and institutional names and abbreviations. (JB)
