Abstract

Comparison of Measures of Achievement and Interactive Technology Use in Distance Education Sherri L. Restauri Jacksonville State University Jacksonville, Alabama srestaur@jsucc.jsu.edu Abstract This study analyzed measures of achievement for students enrolled in distance education courses via assessment of final course grades. Various uses of interactive technologies in classes taught via Distance Education methods and traditional on-campus methods were also compared in this study. Further analysis of the type of interaction methods used and frequency of utilization was performed to determine effects of these various methods of interaction on the achievement of the distance student. Certain benefits and drawbacks of each of the various interaction methods analyzed in this study were found for both students and instructors. A positive correlation was found between the two criteria used to determine student success in this study in both Distance Education and "traditional" courses. Differences were observed in the use of interactive technologies between Distance Education and "traditional" courses.
