Abstract

Forty-one graduate and undergraduate students enrolled in Summer or Fall sections of an applied statistics course self-selected into one of three groups. Group 1 subjects (n = 11) took chapter pretests online and printed out results. Subjects in group 2 (n = 18) printed copies of the pretests but did not take tests online. Group 3 subjects (n = 12) did not access the pretests. Pretests for exams 1 and 3 were made available through a class website using online-testing software developed by the authors. Demographic information (educational background and course learning and performance goals) and prerequisite math skills scores were collected on the first day of class. Groups could not be distinguished, a priori, on the basis of either demographic data or math skill scores. There were, however, statistically significant differences among groups on exam performance, favoring students in the online-pretest group. Factors influencing student performance, as well as issues for future study, are addressed.
