ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, The University of Toledo
Many studies have been conducted where a face-to-face training environment is compared to an online training environment. While some research has been conducted on the nature of online training in faith-based not-for-profit organizations, little to no research has been found on engagement. The purpose of this study was to determine if the level of engagement of participants in a training course for new staff and interns with Campus Crusade for Christ would be increased by conducting training online instead of face-to-face and by utilizing multiple forms of media. The survey that was utilized included questions adapted from the Student Course Engagement Questionnaire (Handelsman et al., 2005) and was analyzed utilizing the Rasch measurement model to understand whether the survey successfully met the requirements for measuring engagement. The Rasch measurement analysis revealed that the survey was weak and did not measure engagement, thus the results of the survey revealed no significant differences in the level of engagement. Further research is recommended with new questions being added to the survey that are considered to have a greater level of difficulty as well as research should be conducted that involve qualitative data collection.
