Programs and Registrations (ACHE-NUEA), 1975-76.
Barton, William D.; And Others
This annual report (1975-76) presents responses from 258 higher education institutions on the trends in continuing education registration in classes, conference programs, and independent study. (The institutions responding carried membership in the Association for Continuing Higher Education and the National University Extension Association.) The findings presented show that compared with the preceding years, lower total registrations were reported in 1975-76, reflecting reductions in Conferences and Independent Study registrations. (Extension Classes increased by 2.7%, but this was not high enough to balance the 7% drop in Conferences and the 17% drop in Independent Study.) It is noted that these generalizations should be qualified by noting the shift in reporting institutions between the two years (1974-75 and 1975-76). Tabular and narrative results are presented in separate sections of the document for each of the three types of programs--classes, conference programs, and independent study. Results for Classes registration are presented by institutional type, by credit or noncredit status, and by subject matter area; results for Conference Programs and Independent Study are presented by institutional type and by subject matter area. The last two sections of this report present totals of programs and registrations by subject matter area and detailed program registrations by reporting institution. The appendix provides a brief definition of 22 academic categories along with a listing of their subcategories. (SH)
