ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, University of Southern California
Online learning has become an alternative method to educating students around the world. Online access has allowed students to take courses at their own paces, choose curriculum that meets their learning needs, and design their own educational plans. Research has found that online learning has become a means to meet the needs of high school credit deficient students. Online credit recovery provides high school students an alternative means to meeting graduation requirements. However, as more districts across the country begin to implement these types of online credit recovery programs, design must be considered. This study examined a district's online credit recovery program. A cost analysis was conducted to compare the costs associated with online credit recovery and face-to-face credit recovery. The study found that there were significant differences in cost, but that implementation and design of the program could close the cost gap.
