The subjects who completed the follow-up survey represented a subset of the historical data subjects. All of them had some relationship to OSS, and each possible relationship was represented in this group. There were 21 respondents total. Three of this group were in the OSS Unsuccessful group, four were in the OSS Drop group, and 14 were in the OSS Successful group. Table 9 shows the semester each of the students enrolled in OSS.

Procedure Historical Data

Historical data were extracted from the college's application and academic records databases. The time period was the fall 2003 through fall 2005 semesters. All academic records were retrieved for any course account identified as a fully online class. This was easy because of the consistency with which our online classes have been assigned a code in our student records database. Enrollment data within those courses include the student identification number; that was used to retrieve demographic data from the application database. The college research officer produced a data file for each of the four groups. These files were generated in the middle of the fall 2005 semester, so for that term enrollment data were included based on the fourth-week census. Grade data were not included for that term.
