Abstract

Compares cognitive-motivational and demographic characteristics of students enrolled in web-based sections of Psychological Statistics with counterparts in conventional sections of the course. No demographic differences were found, however, cyberstudents exhibited a greater external locus of control. Measures of on-line course activity, a high need for cognition, and an internal locus of control were predictive of cyberstudent success. (Author/MKA)
