Lesko, Silvia Jo
TACSCE Research Annual, v6 n1 Fall 1991
This annual contains the paper that won the 1991 President's Award of the Texas Association for Community Service and Continuing Education (TACSCE) as well as the runner-up paper and other articles. An editorial, "Learning to Crawl" (Silvia Lesko), focuses on the editor's "discovery" of the adult learner. "Ethics and Continuing Education" (Janet Harris), the award winner, describes a survey of Texas deans/directors and provides responses to questions in these general areas: ethics and the institution, ethics in practice, and ethics and the continuing education profession. The instrument and responses are appended. The runner-up paper, "One Institution's Experience with a State-Mandated Testing Remediation Program" (Sam Jes'Son, Michael Mezack) discusses a study of the cost efficiency and effectiveness of the Texas Academic Skills Program. The next paper, "1990 Personnel Profile/Salary Survey and Institutional Profile" (Howard Smith, Derek Skaggs), presents responses of 154 members of the TACSCE and Texas Administrators of Continuing Education of Community/Junior Colleges to questions regarding personnel and salary. Also described are responses of 69 continuing education administrators who are TACSCE members to a survey dealing with institutional characteristics. The final paper, "Do Credit and Non-Credit Courses Compete?" (Fred Voda, Silvia Lesko), reports similarities and differences between responses obtained from survey participants at Tarrant County Junior College and the University of Texas at Arlington. (YLB)
