Summary

The purpose of this study was to examine the reasons students dropped ITV courses (college credit courses shown on commercial or educational television) offered by Los Angeles City College in Spring, 1972. The courses offered were: (1) History of Art 1-A, and (2) Law for the 70s (Law for the California Layman-Law 30). A questionnaire was mailed to the 1,083 students who dropped one or both of the two courses; 427 students (40%) responded. The most often stated reason for dropping the class was "the program was presented at an inconvenient time." The respondents were classified into 15 subgroups according to which class they were enrolled in, certain demographic variables, the point at which they dropped the class, the TV channel they watched, and whether they watched black and white or color TV. Responses by these subgroups are presented in tables. In general the art class received much more criticism than the law class, especially in the pace and manner of presentation and in the expenses and availability of course materials. The total group and each subgroup stated that they would enroll in the class if it were offered again. (RG)
