Retention in Online Courses, a presentation by Claire Wladis

December 10
12:15 PM — 1:15 PM

Professor Claire Wladis (Mathematics) Presents Research on Student Retention

There is evidence that online students have higher rates of course and college dropout than students who take courses face-to-face, yet it is not well understood which students are particularly at risk online.

Dr. Wladis surveyed online and face-to-face students from colleges across the German state of Bavaria and from the CUNY university system. Results suggest that grades are significant predictors of differential online versus face-to-face performance in both national contexts and that student parents may be particularly vulnerable to poor online course outcomes when they have insufficient support. In the U.S., native-born students were also vulnerable online.
