Abstract

Online instruction has become a viable option for high school students, but little is known about the effectiveness of online instruction to improve writing achievement. The purpose of this presentation is to discuss a study that was conducted to investigate the effectiveness of three online models for teaching writing skills to high school students. The three online instructional models included the following: (a) PowerPoint media, (b) streaming video, and (c) multimedia (PowerPoint and video). To obtain students' perspectives related to the online instruction they received, participants were invited to complete an online questionnaire designed for this purpose. The questionnaire items will be presented along with the specific outcomes for each question. Implications for the development of effective online instruction will be discussed.
