Abstract

Scope of study. This dissertation summarized research conducted to ascertain the assessment of desired characteristics of graduate faculty in three different graduate learning communities (evening, online and weekend) from a graduate student's perception. A survey was sent to three universities offering evening or online or weekend graduate programs. A total of 536 responses were returned out 1520 surveys that were given to the graduate students in the universities involved. This represents a response rate of 37.04 percent.

Findings and conclusions. This research provided important data about desired characteristics of graduate faculty involved in evening, online and weekend graduate programs. The statistical analysis performed on the gathered data in this study indicated that graduate students enrolled in the three learning environments (evening, online and weekend) considered are more likely (73.33%) to prefer more communication, guidance and technical expertise from their graduate faculty. A positive correlation between the type of program and many factors such as gender, ethnicity and degree sought was found.
