A Comparison between Online and Traditional Learning in an Undergraduate Higher Education Environment
Womack, David L.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, The University of Texas at San Antonio
This study examines differences in performance on selected assignments and two examinations between an online and a traditional undergraduate education course. In addition, differences in Locus of Control between the courses are examined. A MANCOVA indicated no significant difference in Locus of Control. MANCOVA indicated that student performance on assignments showed no significant difference between the course delivery types. Student test scores showed a substantial and statistically significant difference between the traditional and online course delivery methods, with the traditional delivery method associated with higher test scores. Differences in score variances may suggest that student populations are not monolithic but may consist of identifiable subsets.
