Characteristics of SUN Learners (First and Second Offering). Statistical Summary No. 1.
Eggert, John D.
Learners enrolled in multimedia courses offered by the State University of Nebraska (SUN) during its fall 1974 and spring 1975 offerings are described. This report consists of four sections. The first provides an overview of the courses--Accounting I, Introductory Psychology, Making It Count (Computers), and Consumer Experience. The second section outlines the sources of the statistical data in this report, the registration form and the Student Information Questionnaire. In the third section it is noted that the learners were quite similar with a few exceptions. Most were women, many had some formal educational experiences, were in their thirties, and were married with children. Statistical data on enrolled learners are presented in the fourth section, in tabular form with short commentaries. Tables are provided on: mean age; distribution of sexes; marital status; family status; annual income; size of town resided in; percentage of "homemakers;" highest level of education completed; last educational experience; students previously enrolled in SUN's first offering; degree aspirations; three most important goals; and greatest concern.
