An Electronic Survey of Adult Education Programs for the Handicapped.
Leigh, Robert K.; And Others
The study investigated the use of the electronic mail capability of Special Net (an online database) as a data collection instrument. A series of seven questions relating to adult education for the handicapped personnel preparation programs was posted to Special Net users. Five of 40 users responded to the question on-line. A followup questionnaire examined reasons for nonresponse and the prime reason identified was that the message was not received. Use of the online database as a research tool was found to provide extremely short turnaround time between posting the request and receiving responses. Findings of the survey itself included that adult education for the handicapped was not available on 80% of the campuses. (CL)
