Psyc3001 experiment assignment

PSYC3001 - Research Methods 3A

9 Pages Essays / Projects Year: Pre-2018

The experiment was conducted to provide evidence for Fitzpatrick’s (2001) argument that distance education better addresses students’ needs and the modern learning pedagogy. Despite vigorous debate on the effectiveness of distance learning researchers such as Souder (1993) found that distance learners were not disadvantaged in their learning and can in fact outperform classroom learners in exams, and homework assignments. Gubernick and Ebeling (1997) had also highlighted that distant education scored approximately ten precent higher on standardized achievements test than students who were attending lectures. The purpose of this study is to compare traditional study of attending lectures to distance education and students engaging in self learning through research of answers to the curriculum to determine if distance education is as good, better or worse than traditional attendance at lectures.
