Computer-Managed Correspondence in Large Lecture Courses.
Sherman, Lawrence W.
The effects of computer managed personal correspondence from instructor to students in three large lecture sections of an introductory educational psychology course are examined. One section received no correspondence while the second received two and the third four personally signed letters. All letters were personally addressed to each student. Contents of the letters along with the procedures utilized to mail them and the computer programming are described. University sponsored student-course-professor survey data along with data from an additional instructor-made survey suggest that these letters improve students' perceptions of the class and instructor and are a highly positive and desirable public relations technique.
