A Comparison of Final Grades of Distance Learners to Classroom Learners.
Yaw, Dorothy Carole; Gilman, David
This study compared the final grades of 118 traditional classroom learners and 81 distance learners to determine whether there was a significant difference in their grade point averages. The study involved the final grades from five graduate courses in Human Resource Development at Indiana State University. Each participating class was taught by the same professor, and each student received the same information. Distance learners used video tapes, the Internet, and the Indiana Higher Education Telecommunication System network. Students' letter grades were collected and converted to numbers on a 4.0 scale. The numerical grade points for each semester were entered into an SPSS Windows computer application using a two-way Anova test. Data analysis indicated that there were no significant differences between the final grade point averages of the distance learners and the traditional classroom learners. (Contains 12 references.)
