MacFarland, Thomas W.
This study compared the scores of on-campus and off-campus students taking a common final examination in similar graduate education courses offered by the Abraham S. Fischler Center for the Advancement of Education at Nova Southeastern University. Data were obtained from final examinations administered in courses covering methods for teaching secondary English, mathematics, science, and social studies on June 1, 1996, at Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Orlando, Tampa, and West Palm Beach. It found that the 36 off-campus students had higher average scores on the 30 common examination questions than their 25 on-campus counterparts. The on-campus students had a mean score of 23.24, while the off-campus students had a mean score of 25.89. (Contains 17 references.) (MDM)
