Comparison of Student Performance and Attitude in a Lecture Class to Student Performance and Attitude in a Telecourse and a Web-Based Class.
Ryan, William J.
This dissertation examines the impact two technology-based delivery systems--telecourses and Web-based instruction--have on the student's learning experience, compared with an equivalent classroom-based instructional method. The sample was comprised of 78 students from Lakeland Community College in Ohio. All of these students were enrolled in Math 155, which was offered in each of the three instructional methods. Outcome measures assessed included students' final course grades and attitudes as measured by survey response. In addition, the research took into consideration age and gender to see whether these characteristics affect students' achievement regardless of delivery method. The results showed that there was no significant difference in the final course grades in the classes using the two forms of distance learning as compared with students' performance in the traditional lecture-based class. This research has implications for two-year institutions as they explore alternative means of access to instruction to meet the needs of a diverse student population. Appended are: Pre-Script for Comparison of Student Performance and Attitude in a Lecture Class to Student Performance and Attitude in a Telecourse and a Web-Based Class; Statistics Pre-Test; Post-Script for Comparison; Student Attitudinal Survey; and Overall Attitudinal Survey Results. (Contains 32 tables and 138 references.) (Author/JCC)
