Evaluation of Television Offerings, Fall 1975.
This report summarizes results of a survey administered to Johnson County Community College (JCCC) students enrolled in two television courses, Classic Theatre, and The Ascent of Man, during fall 1975. Although questionnaires were mailed to 60 students in Classic Theatre and 121 in The Ascent of Man, usable responses were received from only 23 (38 percent) and 68 (56 percent) respectively. Females predominated in Classic Theatre (65 percent), and males in The Ascent of Man (76 percent). Classic Theatre had more students over 50 and fewer under 20 than the other course. The major source of information about the courses was a college bulletin. The two major reasons for taking the course were the three degree credits offered and general interest. Students were faithful about watching the television programs, but over 50 percent did not attend any of the seminars. Most students read the text at least once. Students responded overwhelmingly that the television presentations were effective. The consensus was that evenings are the most convenient time for television classes. Ninety percent of the students were interested in taking additional classes at JCCC. Many students (37 percent) critized the testing used in The Ascent of Man course. Survey responses are tabulated and the questionnaire is appended. (Author/NHM)
