    ABSTRACT: The following study is of an exploratory and operational nature. Its main objective consists of the estimation of a lineal correlation coefficient between two of the most important variables that have been studied in the Proyecto Venezuela of Fundacredesa; Height, and Graffar Socioeconomical Score of Mendez Castellano. The reached value (r = -0.28) which is based on choice considerations, restrictions, and the adjustment to a pertinent universe, constitute the maximum value that could have been achieved as of the sample gathered in the Proyecto Venezuela. To be able to calculate such value, it was necessary to implement heuristic procedures, designing and producing a complex model of statistical processing. This model allows the estimation of the correlation coefficient as if this coefficient was already obtained from individual and raw data level, but, in this case starting from the Proyecto Venezuela's published information, that only shows aggregate average values. While processing the data--additionally to the principal conclusion of the work that was obtaining the maximum value of the correlation coefficient--it was found that the average of the height variable, at each age group, remained basically unaltered in the I and II Social and Economical Strata, independently of the values that are reached in the Graffar Score.

    ABSTRACT: RESUMEN Se exponen aquí los principales resultados de una investigación de campo realizada para sustentar el diseño de un modelo conceptual del "Sistema de Apoyo Docente para el estudiante de la educación superior abierta y a distancia (SAD)". Se concibió el SAD como un sistema de la Universidad Abierta y a Distancia que interactúa con los estudiantes para brindarles ayuda efectiva en su autoaprendizaje; que forma permanentemente a sus profesores; que va aprendiendo de la experiencia para ir ajustando su desempeño a las necesidades de su entorno y que puede ser adoptado por cualquier universidad que desee ofrecer programas a distancia. La investigación de campo aprovechó la sinergia producto de la complementariedad de los enfoques cualitativo y cuantitativo, en la búsqueda de llegar a aprehender las ideas de los actores participantes en el proceso de apoyo docente (estudiantes y profesores de universidades venezolanas presenciales y a distancia) acerca de lo que debe ser este servicio en una universidad abierta y a distancia. Los resultados obtenidos permitieron vislumbrar una aparente visión compartida entre los sectores estudiados, respecto a sus expectativas sobre el apoyo docente en una universidad abierta y a distancia.
