University Students' Perceptions of Web-Based vs. Paper-Based Homework in a General Physics Course
Demirci, Neset
EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, v3 n1 p29-34 Feb 2007
The main aim of this study was to determine students' perceptions toward web-based versus paper-based homework and identify any differences based on homework performance score and grade point average. A 21-item perception of online vs. paperbased homework survey was administered to 103 students (54 were male and 49 were female) in general physics-1 classes. Results of the study indicated that there was not a statistically significant difference in physics grade point average scores; however, there was a statistically significant difference in homework performance (average) scores based on assigned homework groups. Overall, students' perception of web-based homework testing was positive. Finally, some tentative recommendations are posed.
