A Survey of Learning Program Centers in U.S. Institutions of Higher Education.
Devirian, Margaret Coda; And Others
A national survey of learning laboratories in institutions of higher education, conducted in 1974, is reported in this document. Questionnaires consisting of 70 items on administration, budget, other programs, facility, staffing, services, clients, hardware and software, and evaluation were sent to all college and university learning centers in the United States. Responses were received from 1,258 of the 3,389 campuses listed in the "Educational Directory." Tables show both the responses to 13 of the questions and the returning institutional variables such as level, student population, name of program center (learning center, learning resource center, reading/writing lab, tutorial program, and other), and type of offering. Survey results show that more than half of the program centers are less than five years old, 85 percent are less than 10 years old, program centers have diversity of functions, and 61 percent of all respondents have program centers. The academic background of program administrators and funding of learning program centers is noted. (MKM)
