An Analysis of Final Grades for Selected Courses in the School of Business and Entrepreneurship: Differences between On-Campus and Off-Campus Students.
MacFarland, Thomas W.
This study examined differences in final course grades for campus-based and distance education students in the School of Business and Entrepreneurship at Nova Southeastern University (Florida). Data on 4,161 course grades for winter term 1997 were obtained from university records. It was found that students enrolled in courses offered through distance education received a significantly greater frequency of successful grades (A, B, C, or Pass) than their campus-based counterparts. For the core course offered to master of business administration students, off-campus students were in parity with on-campus students in terms of the relative frequency of successful grades. However, for the core course offered to doctor of business administration students, off-campus students received a greater frequency of successful grades than their on-campus counterparts. An appendix provides four sets of data tables. (MDM)
