Abstract

This study compared the achievement of male and female students who were enrolled in an online univariate statistics course to students enrolled in a traditional face-to-face univariate statistics course. The subjects, 47 gradu-ate students enrolled in univariate statistics classes at a public, com¬prehensive university, were randomly assigned to groups that used either online instruction or traditional face-to-face instruction. There was a significant difference between the achievement of students who used online univariate statistics instruction and those who used traditional face-to-face instruction (p = .001). The traditional face-to-face group scored higher with an effect size of 0.979, indicating that, on the average, those who were enrolled in a traditional face-to-face univariate statistics class outperformed 83.4% of those enrolled in the online statistics course.
