|In the table below, please use
the following definitions to report information about the size of classes
and class sections offered in the Fall 2009 term.|
Sections: A class section is an organized course offered for
credit, identified by discipline and number, meeting at a stated time or
times in a classroom or similar setting, and not a subsection such as a
laboratory or discussion session. Undergraduate class sections are defined
as any sections in which at least one degree-seeking undergraduate student
is enrolled for credit. Exclude distance learning classes and noncredit
classes and individual instruction such as dissertation or thesis
research, music instruction, or one-to-one readings. Exclude students in
independent study, co-operative programs, internships, foreign language
taped tutor sessions, practicums, and all students in one-on-one classes.
Each class section should be counted only once and should not be
duplicated because of course catalog cross-listings.
Class Subsections: A class subsection includes any
subsection of a course, such as laboratory, recitation, and discussion
subsections that are supplementary in nature and are scheduled to meet
separately from the lecture portion of the course. Undergraduate
subsections are defined as any subsections of courses in which
degree-seeking undergraduate students enrolled for credit. As above,
exclude noncredit classes and individual instruction such as dissertation
or thesis research, music instruction, or one-to-one readings. Each class
subsection should be counted only once and should not be duplicated
because of course catalog cross-listings.
Using the above definitions, please report for each of the following
class-size intervals the number of class sections and class subsections
offered in Fall 2009. For example, a lecture class with 800 students who
met at another time in 40 separate labs with 20 students should be counted
once in the "100+" column in the class section column and 40 times under
the "20-29" column of the class subsections table.
