The Residency Requirement for Graduate Programs in Education.
Mayshark, Cyrus
This study was conducted to describe the present status of the graduate residency requirement at a selected sample of colleges and universities across the country in view of the professional pressures for further education and the economic pressures of a high standard of living. Results obtained from the 40 schools that respond to a brief questionnaire indicate that a residency requirement consistent with, or well beyond, the minimum standards of the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education is universally practiced. However, the interpretation of the residency requirement in relation to the total time of the student varies. Concurrent employment is permitted, generally one-half time but with some allowable limits on either side of one-half time. The professional interpretation of what constitutes residency seems to be changing, and this change must be reflected in the standards developed to evaluate the quality of graduate education. (DDO)
