Policies and Practices in Enforcing the Credit Hour.
Shedd, Jessica M.
New Directions for Higher Education, n122 p13-30 Sum 2003
Conducted a survey of the ways colleges and universities apply the student credit hour and the extent to which time is still used as a primary basis for awarding credits. Responses of 38 institutions show that most 4-year institutions do not have internal policies to define credit hours, and that credit hours are defined and awarded inconsistently. (SLD)
