Independent Study Program Profiles 1989-1990. Final Report.
Huffington, Dale; And Others
This final report includes 80 institutions' final responses to the National University Continuing Education Association (NUCEA) Independent Study Division's annual survey of college, high school, and noncredit program practices during 1989-90. Eight figures are included to provide information on course enrollments, course fees, staff size, course developments, and faculty stipends. The data in the eight tables enable the administrators and staff of independent study programs to compare and contrast their activities, staffing, programming, and enrollment growth patterns with those of other institutions. Format and contents of the tables follow an established pattern to maintain comparability between years. A survey was sent during July 1990 to 143 institutions that had responded to previous surveys, were new NUCEA members, or had a professional member of the Independent Study Division. During August, follow-up letters and telephone calls were made to all nonresponding institutions and to those whose survey responses were markedly changed from before. Of the 348,000 independent study enrollments reported by 80 institutions for 1989-1990, 57.4% are in college courses, 30.2% are in high school courses, and 12.4% are in noncredit courses. Overall enrollments have increased from 1988-1989. The independent study research survey form is included in the report. Footnotes for college, high school, and noncredit program information are also included. (NLA)
