Independent Study Program Profiles 1988-1989. Final Report.
Huffington, Dale; And Others
Of the 329,301 independent study enrollments reported by 77 National University Continuing Education Association (NUCEA) institutions in 1988-89, 55 percent are in college courses (a slight increase over 1987-88), 32 percent are in high school courses (a slight decrease), and 13 percent are in noncredit courses. When a comparison is made of only those institutions that responded to both the 1987-88 and 1988-89 surveys, the latter's total enrollments are about 5 percent greater. For semester-length college courses, students paid an average of $57 per semester hour. Faculty were paid an average of $3.17 per lesson, $24.11 per semester hour, or $49.03 per enrollment for grading, as well as an average of $964.40 per course or $357.63 per semester hour for development. For quarter-length college courses, students paid an average of $39.60 per quarter hour. Faculty were paid an average of $3.50 per lesson or $18.25 per quarter hour for grading and an average of $675 per course or $162 per quarter hour for course development. The average high school course fee was $49.45; the grading stipend was $5.21 per lesson or $23.67 per enrollment; the average development stipend was $623.87. The average noncredit course fee was $78.33. (Numerous tables lists data as reported by each of the 77 responding schools/universities.) (KC)
