Studying the Effectiveness of Online Homework for Different Skill Levels in a College Algebra Course
Mathai, Elizabeth; Olsen, Darlene
PRIMUS, v23 n8 p671-682 2013
A comparison of the performance on the final exam for subpopulations of students in College Algebra was used to assess the effectiveness of online homework. Data was collected for two small groups of students, one with traditional paper homework and the other with online homework. The groups of students were further classified by incoming skill level measured by a departmental placement test. The data suggests that online homework was beneficial to the incoming higher-skilled group, whereas, the lower-skilled students did not benefit from online homework.
