Fifteen Most Heavily Enrolled Baccalaureate Courses, Fall 1975--Spring 1977. Report #1, 1077.
Kirby, Emily B.
A four semester examination of the 15 most heavily enrolled baccalaureate courses at Oakton Community College (Illinois) for fall, 1975 through spring, 1977, revealed consistently heavy enrollments in the social sciences and general education core courses in communications. Science and math enrollments accounted for less than 15% of the total each semester. In each semester, the l5 most heavily enrolled courses accounted for 35-40% of total enrollment. Grade distributions of the l9 most heavily enrolled courses which appeared on the semester lists varied widely, with some courses consistently "easy" (combined A/B grades) and others "hard" (C or less). C grades were underused throughout. The document contains tables which contain course titles ranked in descending order, and letter grades awarded with percentages for each semester as well as the two year period. (Author/RT)
