Measuring Sense of Community and Perceived Learning among Alternative Licensure Candidates
Wighting, Mervyn J.
Journal of the National Association for Alternative Certification, v6 n1 p4-12 Spr 2011
Quantitative analysis was used to investigate relationships between sense of class community and perceived learning among alternative licensure candidates (N = 58) based on their scores from two separate standardized instruments measuring the constructs. Study results provide evidence that relationships do indeed exist and that differences between the two constructs can be identified within the data. Low correlations existed between the two constructs; correlations were higher for females than for males. There were no significant gender differences in either sense of community or perceived learning. Implications of these results are discussed and recommendations for further research are provided.
