A Profile of Students Enrolled for Credit in the Extramural Teaching Program at Louisiana State University, Spring Semester, 1973.
Simon, Edward L.
This study determined selected characteristics of 958 students enrolled in the Extramural Teaching Program conducted by the Continuing Education Division of Louisiana State University. Data were gathered through a pretested questionnaire administered to the students by the instructors of 83 courses. Frequency distributions of the results yielded the following interpretations: a) the Extramural Teaching Program is serving an educational need for a large number of people from many areas in Louisiana; b) the ages of the students should be considered when developing curriculum for extramural programs; c) the majority of the students in this program are goal oriented; d) some students drive several miles to participate in courses, but convenience seems to be a factor in course offerings; 3) consideration should be given to expanding the program for professional people outside the field of education; f) the quality of the courses offered in the program is good; g) very few of the participants make use of library facilities; h) consideration should be given to a more effective system of announcing courses; and i) financial support for the program should be expanded.
