Predictors of Secondary Students' Achievement and Satisfaction in Online Courses
Metz, Kimberly Faith
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Liberty University
Online learning has been prevalent at the post-secondary level and is increasingly being used at the secondary level. There are many advantages for students to learn online such as students being able to work at their own pace, work anytime and anywhere and take a course that would not otherwise be offered. Career and Technical Education (CTE) can use online learning for classroom instruction, and allow additional time for hands-on instruction or for other courses of study. This study investigated the extent that CTE students' online course grades can be predicted by the Distance Education Learning Environment Survey (DELES) (Insight System, n.d.) and by students' Grade Point Averages and the extent that six DELES psychosocial scales can predict student satisfaction.
