An Evaluative Look at Nontraditional Postsecondary Education.
Stalford, Charles B., Ed.
Three papers focusing on various aspects of nontraditional postsecondary education, are presented in this volume. The first paper by Cross and Zusman explores the issue of nontraditional population needs and associated program responses. The second paper, by Bowen, Edelstein, and Medsker, focuses on the kinds of information that decisionmakers in nontraditional postsecondary education need and use. Finally, the third paper, by Ruyle and Watkins, explores specific kinds of data that might be obtained and the instrumentation to obtain them in an actual field evaluation of nontraditional postsecondary education. The appendixes to the papers provide descriptions of studies focusing on characteristics and needs of adult learners. (JH)
