Matriculation Status of Fall Term 1993 Fischler Graduate School of Education and Human Services Students by the Beginning of Fall Term 1998: Campus-Based Students and Distance Education Students by Site. Report No. 99-07.
MacFarland, Thomas W.
This study examined the matriculation status of all fall term 1993 students at the Fischler Graduate School of Education and Human Services of Nova Southeastern University by fall term 1998, differentiating between campus-based students and distance education students at individual sites. Data were obtained on matriculation rates of 1,584 campus-based students and 2,602 distance education students. It was found that campus-based doctoral students had a greater frequency of successful matriculation than distance education students. At many sites, the level of difference between campus-based students (80 percent successful matriculation) and distance education students (overall, 69 percent successful matriculation) was quite evident. In regard to master's level and educational specialist students, distance education students tended to either equal or exceed their campus-based counterparts in terms of successful matriculation. An appendix provides statistical tables. (Contains 17 references.) (MDM)
