A Study of Students' Desires to Enroll in Classes and their Enrolling in Those Classes.
Garlock, Jerry C.
In order to determine the relationship between those courses students wished to take and those in which they actually enrolled, students were asked to indicate their course preference during fall 1977 registration. For each day of the registration process, the desired classes were compared with the number of students enrolled in each class. Results indicated that approximately 600 (over one-fourth) of the course sections were desired by more students than were actually able to enroll in them. Over 16% (361) of the sections were courses which less than one-half of the students enrolled had selected as first choice. The course which had the highest number of students wishing to enroll in relation to the number of registrants was Beginning Ballet Techniques. Tables of ratio frequencies and a selection from the total list of specific class sections identified by ratio are included. (MB)
