Course Completion Survey on the Delivery Process and the Course Content of the OCOD-CTTP Distance Education Project: Learner Survey.
This publication presents data from a survey designed to examine the delivery process and the course content of the Comprehensive Teacher Training Programme (CTTP), a distance education program of study for untrained Caribbean elementary and primary school teachers. The distance education program offers four courses in core subjects and prepares students to pass Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) examinations for entry into teacher training colleges. The survey asks students 55 questions on their own characteristics, their experience of program tutors and learning environment, their contact with tutors, their experience with assignments, feedback and evaluation, and their thoughts on overcoming future hurdles in studying at a distance. The data include the following: 43 learners responded to the survey; 81.4 percent of these were female; 60.5 percent were from rural and remote locations; 70 percent were in their second year in the program; and 39.5 percent were ages 25 to 29. With respect to the program tutors and learning environment, 81 percent said that tutors had helped them acquire learning and study skills; 19.3 percent sought help from tutors to prepare for exams; most contact with tutors was in face-to-face sessions or during specified telephone hours; 86 percent of students received assignment feedback within 2 weeks; and 58.1 percent received that feedback via a friend, colleague, or relative.
