Student Perceptions of Quality and Satisfaction in Online Education
Simpson, Jill M.; Benson, Angela D.
Quarterly Review of Distance Education, v14 n4 p221-231 2013
The purpose of this study was to examine student perceptions of quality and satisfaction in regionally accredited online courses. Results indicated that undergoing a formal peer review may lead to higher student satisfaction in a course. Results also indicated that being subscribed to a peer review program without undergoing a formal peer review may lead to lower student satisfaction with the course. Both of these results were insignificant. The researcher recommends future research regarding the correlation of student satisfaction to peer review subscriptions without a formal peer review.
