Evaluation of the Effect of a Blended Course Format on Student Performance

Mon, April 7, 12:25 to 1:55pm, Convention Center, Floor: Terrace Level, Terrace IV


The Purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of a blended course design on student performance in gateway courses at a large public university. Two analyses were conducted. The first compared the performance of students in blended courses to students taking the same courses prior to implementation of the blended format. The second analysis examined whether participation in a blended prerequisite course influenced grades in a sequent blended course. The findings indicated students enrolled in blended courses earned higher mean GPAs than those enrolled in traditional courses and students who were enrolled in a blended prerequisite course earned higher mean GPAs in a sequent course than students who took the prerequisite course in a traditional format.
