An Analysis of Final Grades for Selected Courses in the Center for Psychological Studies: 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 Center for Psychological Studies at Nova Southeastern University (Florida). Data on 2,244 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 similar frequency of successful grades (A, B, C, or Pass) relative to their campus-based counterparts. It was also found that in three courses in the master's program in mental health counseling (Human Development and Learning, Substance Abuse, and Case Conceptualization), students enrolled in courses offered through distance education received a similar frequency of successful grades relative to their campus-based counterparts. An appendix provides four sets of data tables. (MDM)
