Abstract

In light of the lack of consensus on the effectiveness of online education, there continues to be a need for more quantitative studies comparing hybrid, online, and traditional delivery methods. This paper compares and contrasts the three delivery methods to determine what differences exist in student completion, performance, effort, and satisfaction. Our results show better performance from the traditional section when compared to the others. We do not find statistically significant differences in student effort or in student completion. Student satisfaction was high in all sections.
