Data Set Items

    12-Month Graduate Instructional Activity Credit Hours - '12-Month Enrollment and Instructional Activity Credit Hour Activity for academic programs: Graduate Programs Related glossary links CREDIT HOUR ACTIVITY - The provision of coursework to students which can be measured in terms of credit hours. For the purposes of this survey, total credit hour activity was determined by multiplying the credit hour value of the course by the number of students enrolled in the course for credit. For example, the credit hour activity for a 3-credit course with an enrollment of 30 students is 90 credit hours. Using this as a guide, institutions were asked to compute the credit hours attempted for each course and sum the activity for all credit hour courses over the total 12-month period. enrollment is based on the number of students enrolled at the close of the official drop/add period or other census date of the institution. INSTRUCTIONAL ACTIVITY - The provision of coursework to students which can be measured in various terms. CREDIT - Recognition of attendance or performance in an instructional activity (course or program) that can be applied by a recipient toward the requirements for a degree, diploma, certificate, or other formal award.


12-Month Undergraduate Instructional Activity Contact Hours - '12-Month Enrollment and Instructional Activity Contact Hour Activity for occupational (undergraduate) programs Related glossary links CONTACT HOUR ACTIVITY - The provision of coursework to students which can be measured in terms of contact or clock hours. For the purposes of this survey, total contact hour activity was determined by multiplying the contact hour value of the program by the number of students enrolled in the program. For example, a 600 hour program with 6 students enrolled would contribute 3600 contact hours to the total 12-month activity as long as all 3600 hours were completed during the timeframe. However,if 3 students completed their program but the remaining 3 only completed half the program, the institution should report 1,800 hours for the first three students and 900 hours for the second group; or a total of 2,700 hours toward the 12-month total. INSTRUCTIONAL ACTIVITY - The provision of coursework to students which can be measured in various terms. CREDIT - Recognition of attendance or performance in an instructional activity (course or program) that can be applied by a recipient toward the requirements for a degree, diploma, certificate, or other formal award.
