Effect of Instructional Delivery Method on Student Achievement in a Master's of Business Administration Course at the Wayne Huizenga School of Business and Entrepreneurship.
Moorhouse, Dian R.
The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of instructional delivery method on student achievement by examining the application of two different delivery methods to separate groups of students enrolled in different sections of the same Master's in Business Administration course at Nova Southeastern University, Florida. For each section, instructor, text, assignments, and examination were identical. One group of 20 students received traditional, face-to-face instruction in a classroom setting, with classes delivered in a weekend format. The other group of 15 students received electronically mediated instruction, with instruction delivered online and discussion transpiring between student and instructor via e-mail and online discussion group. Student performance was operationally defined as the score on a midterm examination. Findings reveal that there was no statistically significant difference in the mean test scores for the two groups.
