Predicting Student Engagement in Online High Schools
Vieira, Christopher James
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, California State University, Fresno
The purpose of this study was to analyze student engagement in online high schools based on demographic information of high school students using a mixed methods research design. Key findings through a multiple regression analysis and Pearson correlation coefficient suggest that although the majority of participants in the study are highly engaged with their online curriculum, no specific determination can be made as to which demographics are significantly engaged in comparison to their counterparts in online high school. An analysis of the independent variables included gender, GPA, and active time, while dependent variables (including measures of engagement) showed no significant relationship between the variables. Qualitative data conducted through open-ended questions and interviews indicated that although students seemed to be engaged with the e2020 curriculum, student recommendations for curriculum providers included creating more interactive and game-based activities to increase overall student engagement.
