The three main articles describing "sub-projects" of the European Home Study Council (EHSC) research project, "Two-Way Communication in Correspondence Education," are short versions of papers presented by researchers at the University of Lund, Sweden, at the EHSC spring 1979 workshop. "Postal Two-Way Communication in Correspondence Education" concentrates on three problems of the traditional mode: submission density, self-check tests to replace assignments for submission, and computer-assisted correspondence tutoring. These results are reported: no significant differences between the variables in the first two problems and higher starting and completion rates for computer-assisted courses. "Correspondence Education Combined with Systematic Telephone Tutoring" compares a group receiving telephone tutoring with a control group with these results: telephone tutoring is suited for foreign language study, study time is not affected, a students receiving tutoring showed increased interest and knowledge of the subject. "Correspondence Education Combined with Face-to-Face Meetings" presents results of studies of outcomes, two types of face-to-face tuition, and background variables in student choice of method. These preliminary results are cited: course completion and study time are positively affected, students feel teacher contact is an advantage, and little difference is seen between teacher-controlled teaching and the student-centered approach.
