Analysis of Student Perceptions of the Psychosocial Learning Environment in Online and Face-to-Face Career and Technical Education Courses
Carver, Diane L.; Kosloski, Michael F., Jr.
Quarterly Review of Distance Education, v16 n4 p7-21 2015
This study analyzed student perceptions of the psychosocial learning environment in online and face-to-face career and technical education courses, and used survey data from a school district in Washington state. A Mann-Whitney "U" test was used to measure variability and compare the mean scores for a series of psychosocial learning environment scales between online and face-to-face environments to determine if differences exist. Analysis of the data indicates that in the areas of active learning and autonomy, students perceive online education as offering more benefit than face-to-face education. In the areas of student interaction, collaboration, and enjoyment, student perceptions favor the face-to-face environment.
