Hebert, F. Ted.; Reynolds, Katherine C.
Journal of Public Affairs Education, v4 n4 p253-62 Oct 1998
A study compared outcomes of master's programs in public administration and other professional-education programs organized in cohort (intact student groups in lock-step course patterns) and noncohort formats. Students in cohort format had cognitive and affective learning gains equivalent or superior to traditional format students. Learning gains varied when age, gender, and progress toward degree were considered. (Author/MSE)
