  • Reading Surveys
    Joel is conducting research about the relationship between reading and listening to audio (recorded) books.  Surveys are for students, teachers, parents, and adults,
  • Distance-Education Surveys
    Distance education programs are evolving at a breakneck pace. For busy adults, online programs offer the key to completing degree and professional growth requirements while maintaining a balanced family life. This research project involves collecting data from non-profit and profit community colleges, colleges, universities, and other organizations to see what current trends are in developing, delivering, assessing, and improving distance education.

    As the economy evolves and jobs change, needs for workforce training and continuing education also are in a process of evolution. This project involves completion of data gathering surveys in several communities in Northern Illinois. Results of these surveys will be shared with participating Chambers of Commerce and other organizations and with community colleges supporting the communities participating in the project.
