Assessing the Disconnect between Grade Expectation and Achievement in a Business Statistics Course
Berenson, Mark L.; Ramnarayanan, Renu; Oppenheim, Alan
Journal of Education for Business, v90 n2 p72-80 2015
In an institutional review board--approved study aimed at evaluating differences in learning between a large-sized introductory business statistics course section using courseware assisted examinations compared with small-sized sections using traditional paper-and-pencil examinations, there appeared to be a severe disconnect between the final grades students expected to receive and the grades they actually earned. Given that the core-required business statistics course has, for many years, had a reputation among students as being anxiety producing, this disconnect was quite surprising. Using student responses to a survey administered early in the semester, demographic information was available that enabled assessment of this disconnect.
