Summary

This is a progress report on the first 6 months activity of the Commission on Non-Traditional Study which was established: 1) to examine all aspects of non-traditional postsecondary education, including the external degree, now in operation or being planned; 2) to evaluate the desirability and feasibility of such study; 3) to identify the inadequacies in current data necessary for intelligent decision making and to press for correction of such inadequacies; 4) to make recommendations for creating whatever additional machinery seems appropriate to strengthening the guarantees of quality in these forms of education; 5) to explore the possibility of additional experimental models; and 6) to assure easy accessibility to the large body of information that is presently unsystematized. The Commission has found great interest in non-traditional education, although the term is difficult to define accurately, and the subject matter for non-traditional study is still largely unexplored. Some conclusions are that the philosophy of full opportunity in education should be fostered, that changes should be made by an evolutionary process rather than by radical upheaval, and that special attention should be paid to counseling and guidance for the potential student. More data gathering and other research are necessary and special agencies should be created to deal with accreditation and non-traditional curricula. (MBM)
