What's the Difference, Still? A Follow-Up Review of the Quantitative Research Methodology in Distance Learning
Randolph, Justus
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Joensuu Learning and Instruction Symposium (Joensuu, Finland, Oct 14-15, 2005)
A high quality review of the distance learning literature from 1992-1999 concluded that most of the research on distance learning had serious methodological flaws. This paper presents the results of a small-scale replication of that review. From three leading distance education journals, a sample of 66 articles was categorized by study type and the experimental or quasi-experimental articles were analyzed in terms of their research methodologies. The results indicate that the sample of post-1999 articles had the same methodological flaws as the sample of pre-1999 articles. (Contains 2 tables.)
