Distance Education Practices: Summary Results of the AACRAO February 2015 60 Second Survey
American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO)
The February 2015 American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO) "60 Second Survey" asked respondents to identify whether or not their institution offers distance education, and if so, to answer additional questions about distance education course practices. The survey received 838 unique institutional responses representing 13 countries, commonwealths or territories, all 50 states plus DC, and 9 Canadian provinces as well as a variety of institutional types, control and sizes. All respondents were provided with the following definitions of distance education: (1) Online course--100% online course content with either synchronous or asynchronous learning. These courses may be self-paced or paced. They do not require any proctored course content, and (2) Hybrid/blended course--online courses that require a physical on-site presence for any reason, including proctored exams or other course content. These courses may be self-paced or paced. Results indicated that almost 9 out of 10 (87%, n = 733) of respondents indicated that their institution does offer distance education classes. Table 1, 2 and 3 disaggregate the results by institutional type, control and size. In general, the larger the institution, the more likely they are to offer distance education. Public institutions are slightly more likely than other types of institutional control to offer distance education courses. The following are appended: (1) Survey Instrument; (2) Count of Respondent by Country, Commonwealth, or Territory and State or Province, if applicable; (3) Count of Respondent by Institution Type and Control; (4) Count of Respondent by Institution Size and Control; (5) Count of Respondent by Institution Size and Type; (6) Other Responses for Course Delivery Methods; (7) Other Subjects More Likely to have Proctored Content; and (8) Other Methods Used to Identify Distance Education Courses for Reporting and Tracking Purposes.
