A Guide to Educational Programs in Noncollegiate Organizations.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Office of Noncollegiate Sponsored Instruction.
Today it is recognized that education is an important element of human growth that takes place in many settings, not simply on the college campus. This endeavor is the first project at either the national or state level to set up a mechanism for evaluating educational programs sponsored by noncollegiate organizations in New York. The credit recommendations established for high quality programs and courses found to be comparable to college-level instruction will assist many currently participating adults in gaining academic recognition for the learning they acquire. Such recognition may well motivate more of them to enroll as full-time or part-time students in degree programs in colleges and universities. Sections of the guide cover: descriptions of evaluation systems, questions and answers for students and administrators, how to use the guide, course descriptions and credit recommendations. A list of consultants and a course index complete the document. (Author/PG)
