The Journalism Writing Course: Evaluation of Hybrid versus Online Grammar Instruction
Moore, Jensen; Jones, Khristen
Journalism and Mass Communication Educator, v70 n1 p6-25 Mar 2015
This study examined introductory journalism writing courses and compared hybrid (part online/part classroom) versus online grammar instruction. The hybrid structure allowed for grammar topics to be taught online, with a pretest following, and then reviewing missed/difficult pretest concepts in class prior to a posttest. The quasi-experimental separate-sample pretest-posttest research design spanned four semesters and included data from 567 students. Although differences emerged between hybrid and online regarding different grammatical concepts, overall results indicated that student grammar scores improved regardless of teaching method. However, students in the hybrid course were significantly more satisfied with overall media writing skills acquired than were online students.
