A Report on Class Scheduling at the Northline Campus: Focus on Fall 2001.
Perry, Terrye; Cambrice, Brenda; High, Clennis F.; Morris, Barbara
This report is the result of a survey conducted by the Northeast College in the Houston Community College System (HCCS) (Texas) to assist students with class scheduling. It will provide the academic offices with information that will allow for more efficiency when scheduling classes and act as a retention strategy by allowing students to have input in the process of determining when classes will be offered for them. Results include: (1) most students at the Northline campus preferred day classes as opposed to evening and night classes; (2) more students preferred classes on Monday and Wednesday morning than other times; (3) the least popular times for students were Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.; (4) the second most popular time selected was Monday, Wednesday, and Friday between the hours of 8 AM and 3 PM; and (5) the majority of students preferred having classes during the day, with less than a third (30%) indicating that they preferred nighttime classes. These data appear to be consistent with other information that the system has collected in the past. However, the lack of current available data for the system makes it impossible to determine whether this "day-night divide" at the Northline campus is in alignment with that of the system as a whole.
