Comparison of Performance and Attitude in Traditional and Computer Conferencing Classes


The outcomes measured included scores on achievement tests, time-on-task, student attitudes, and drop-out rates. While the results were mixed, the scores on achievement tests were highest for students taking a correspondence course and lowest for students participating in computer-mediated learning ... there was a significant difference in the attitudes of students; the computer-mediated learning group was less positive toward the course than the conventional classroom group.
