Evaluation of Nontraditional Age Learners' Experiences in Internet-Based Clinical Social Work Courses
Swanke, Jayme; Zeman, Laura Dreuth
College Quarterly, v18 n4 Fall 2015
This study involves an evaluation of online learners' experiences with two Internet-based clinical social work courses. The evaluation sought to discover whether there were differences in learning between traditional (under 25 years old) and nontraditional age learners (25 years and over) who completed the asynchronous online course. The study examined differences between the competency and reaction to the course across learner groups following an online-based clinical social work class. Researchers used quiz scores and survey responses to create a picture of learning patterns. There were minimal differences in learning outcomes between the cohorts of students (traditional v non-traditional). Traditional age learners' data showed relationships between the number of minutes they accessed the online class and their scores on quizzes. The nontraditional aged learners' data showed a relationship between quiz scores and prior social work experience.
