Butler, Karen L.; Dawkins, Phyllis Worthy
Journal of Negro Education, v77 n3 p264-270 Sum 2008
Learning communities are becoming increasingly popular in the quest for enhancing student learning. The purpose of this study is to examine the impact of the "Healthy Youth" Learning Community on student learning outcome measures. In this study, the authors compared student learning outcome measures of students enrolled in those sections of HED 332 that were involved in the Health Youth Learning Community with those who were not. The outcome measures used were: midterm exam, final exam, lesson plan, lesson plan presentation, and overall course average. Results indicate a statistically significant difference on midterm and final exam scores. (Contains 1 table.)
