Summary

The Developmental Education Questionnaire was mailed nationwide, in November 1974, to members of the Special Interest Group for Two Year Colleges of the International Reading Association. Responses were made by 109 of the 252 members. The purpose of the questionnaire was to develop a profile of the organization of developmental education programs and how they fit into college programs throughout the country. The data from the questionnaire are analyzed, and tables and discussions are presented on the following topics: types of colleges represented, day and night enrollments, kinds of labs, course titles, tutoring, financial breakdown of tutoring programs, auspices under which programs operate, instructional formats, staffing, lab facilities, reporting patterns of instructors and respondents, program funding, and selection of advisory committees. Three major themes recurred in exploring the unique features of developmental education: (1) the individualization of materials for the learner, (2) the dedication of personnel, and (3) the tie-in of skills to the content areas.
