Summary

Students, faculty, and administrators at five Washington community colleges participated in a questionnaire study designed to (1) determine current trends in saturday instruction, (2) survey attitudes toward such a process, (3) identify relevant problems, and (4) develop a questionnaire for local use. Of the 14 Washington community colleges, none offered "regular" classes on saturday, though five presented certain special classes. Among students, 40 percent indicated refusal to take saturday classes, and there was general preference for early morning classes. Job and home responsibilities were the principal deterrents, and there was more acceptance of the idea among students who were older, who had better grades, and who identified more closely with the college. Though 20 percent of the faculty members said they would not teach on saturday, the majority indicated willingness, provided that certain conditions of load, salary, and time off were met. All groups agreed that saturday classes would accommodate more students, permit more effective facility use, and allow more flexible scheduling, but that such classes would interfere with student work, break up the weekend, and interfere with leisure. The questionnaire and tabulated results of the survey are included. (wo)
