Rogers, Gayla; Finley, Donna; Kline, Theresa
Innovative Higher Education, v25 n3 p183-96 Spr 2001
Two studies explored one university's application of learner-type segmentation to enable a better understanding of its undergraduate students. Tested the hypothesized segments of "job focused,""knowledge seeker,""socio-economic advantage,""stepper," and "undecided" through surveys and focus groups. Found support for "career-oriented,""curiosity-driven,""socio-economic,""stepper,""undecided," and "dual-purpose" student segments. (EV)
