The Status of the Continuing Education Unit in Kentucky's Public Institutions of Higher Education.
The extent of standardization in the award of continuing education units (CEUs) in Kentucky was studied. A questionnaire was mailed to University of Kentucky program offices, the five regional universities and Kentucky State University, the University of Louisville, and the 13 community colleges. The response rate averaged 71 percent. Fifteen questions dealt with practices relevant to establishing and awarding CEUs at the institutions; another 15 questions related to attitudes regarding these practices. The only practices that seemed to be in effect at a majority of the campuses across the state were: requiring attendance for the award of CEUs; including classroom hours as the primary determinant of the number of CEUs to be awarded; and giving no grades for CEU activities. Most of the institutions responding were also similar in requiring the same basic information upon registration by participants for maintaining records for CEUs awarded. There were marked differences in other practices, including those related to costs, financial support, planning activities, receiving approval for CEU activities, awarding CEUs, awarding certificates, recordkeeping, and types of activities for which CEUs are awarded. Appended are data on CEUs awarded from 1974 through 1978 for each institution, and the study questionnaire. (SW)
