Roblyer, M. D.; Davis, Lloyd – Online Journal of Distance Learning Administration, 2008
Virtual schooling has the potential to offer K-12 students increased access to educational opportunities not available locally, but comparatively high dropout rates continue to be a problem, especially for the underserved students most in need of these opportunities. Creating and using prediction models to identify at-risk virtual learners, long a…

Roblyer, M. D. – Phi Delta Kappan, 2006
Although dropout rates in virtual school courses are typically quite high, some virtual programs have very low course dropout and failure rates and better passing rates on key criterion tests (e.g., AP tests) than do traditional school programs. Directors of five successful virtual schools agreed to share their "formulas for success" in…

Roblyer, M. D. – Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), 2005
In a field as complex as educational technology, conflict is common; consensus is not. Yet there is widespread agreement on at least one point: A more organized and persuasive body of evidence on technology's benefits to classroom practice is needed. The current climate calling for accountability through evidence-based research has been building…

Roblyer, M. D.; Porter, Marclyn; Bielefeldt, Talbot; Donaldson, Martha B. – Journal of Computing in Teacher Education, 2009
Anecdotal accounts from teachers have long suggested the possibility that virtual teaching experiences have a positive impact on face-to-face teaching practices, a so-called "reverse impact" phenomenon. Survey and focus group data collected as part of a statewide evaluation of a virtual school offered an opportunity to explore this impact.…

Two lines of research have emerged to study the causes and prevention of student failure in virtual (K-12) schools: studies of learner characteristics and studies of learning environment characteristics. To develop a useful model for predicting failure and promoting success in virtual school environments, a study was designed to measure the…

Distance learning theory and research holds that interaction is an essential characteristic of successful distance learning courses. However, the lack of definition as to what constitutes observable, measurable interactive qualities in distance learning courses has prevented transfer from theory and research to design practices and has hindered…
