Abstract

An experimental program in which students may enroll in courses for varying amounts of credit, and select course objectives that are in line with their educational goals is described. A preliminary analysis of the results indicates that students tend strongly to approve of the goals of the experiment, have performed well, and, on the whole, react positively to the educational conditions involved. Early evaluation appears to show that some of the techniques commonly used for introductory courses are applicable, and others not very applicable, to education in courses involving upper division and graduate students.
