Student Perceptions of Peer Credibility Based on Email Addresses
Livermore, Jeffrey A.; Scafe, Marla G.; Wiechowski, Linda S.; Maier, David J.
Contemporary Issues in Education Research, v6 n4 p393-398 2013
The purpose of this study was to evaluate students' perceptions of their peer's credibility based on email addresses. The survey was conducted at a community college in Michigan where all students were registered and actively taking at least one course. The survey results show that a student's selection of an email address does influence other students' perception of their credibility. An email address that consists of a nickname reduces the student's perception of peer credibility.
