An Inquiry into Retention and Achievement Differences in Campus Based and Web Based AP Courses
Barbour, Michael; Mulcahy, Dennis
Rural Educator, v27 n3 p8-12 Sum 2006
A decade ago the Advanced Placement (AP) program was introduced into the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador. Initially, schools embraced this opportunity to provide their students with opportunities that were previously unavailable. However, within a few years the AP program was relegated to urban and large regional high schools. Few smaller, and particularly rural schools, were able to offer AP courses only to the brightest one or two students taking it as an independent study. In 1997-98, schools began to deliver AP courses in a web-based method. The purpose of the study is to examine the retention rates and student achievement in AP courses in the province between different delivery models. (Contains 6 tables.)
