Assessing the impact of blended learning on student performance
AbstractThis paper assesses quantitatively the impact on student performance of a blended learning experiment within a large undergraduate first year course in statistics for business and economics students. We employ a differences- in-difference econometric approach, which controls for differences in student characteristics and course delivery method, to evaluate the impact of blended learning on student performance. Although students in the course manifest a preference for live lectures over online delivery, our empirical analysis strongly suggests that student performance is not affected (either positively or negatively) by the introduction of blended learning.
