Do Online Courses Work for Middle Grades and High School Students? Online Students Have Their Say
Thomas, William R.
Southern Regional Education Board (SREB)
The Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) asked online students in SREB states for feedback about their experiences through a voluntary online questionnaire in spring 2008. This report summarizes more than 2,000 responses and provides insight into what students think about online learning and how courses might be improved. Specifically, the students were asked whether the course was well designed and instructional materials were available when needed; whether the teacher had set high academic expectations and facilitated student learning; and whether the student was prepared for the online course. These summary responses from online students should be helpful to SREB states as they strive to further improve the quality of their courses and work with online teachers. A table of questionnaire response percentages is appended. [This publication was produced by SREB's Educational Technology Cooperative.]
