Distance Learning Evaluation Study, Phase I. A Study of North Dakota and Missouri Schools Implementing German I by Satellite. Descriptive Statistical Report.
Hobbs, Vicki M.; Osburn, Donald E.
This report is a preliminary analysis of data provided by the 7 North Dakota and 14 Missouri schools involved in the German I by Satellite Program during the 1987-88 school year. In May 1988 each of the 21 schools participated in the first phase of a comprehensive distance learning study, the purpose of which was to identify the factors associated with program success or failure. Questionnaires mailed to each district included those for: (1) the administrator responsible for initiating the program in the school; (2) the program coordinator; (3) each student enrolled in German I by Satellite; and (4) a parent of each enrolled student. In addition, students were given a standardized German test to be used as a relative measure of achievement against which input variables could then be measured. The report is intended to provide initial feedback to participating schools and other interested agencies and organizations. Data are presented in both narrative and tabular form throughout the report. (GL)
