Studying Distance Education at Community Colleges
Beatty-Guenter, Patricia
Journal of Applied Research in the Community College, v10 n2 p119-126 Spr 2003
This paper identifies a need to study the success of students taking college course offerings using distance education. Measurement issues are discussed, including a proposal for definition of some key variables involved in studying distance delivery by institutional researchers. Concerns about student outcomes are identified using data from two community colleges to reveal comparative course completion rates (distance education vs. face-to-face instruction). This paper proposes some practices in the study of distance delivery at community colleges and encourages researchers to share data about this phenomenon. (Contains 2 tables.)
