MacFarland, Thomas W.
This study compared the progress of 3,300 undergraduate students at Nova Southeastern University (Florida), of whom 2,410 were campus-based and 890 were distance education students. The study population consisted of all Fall Term 1993 Farquhar Center for Undergraduate Studies students, differentiating between campus-based and distance education students. Successful matriculation was defined as graduated and/or still enrolled five years later (Fall 1998). The study found that distance education students had a statistically significantly greater frequency of successful matriculation by Fall 1998 than their campus-based counterparts. Breakout analyses, comparing the matriculation of students at individual distance education sites to that of campus-based students, are annexed. (DB)
