Delivery Formats, Course Persistence, and Completion Rate: A Comparison of Online, Face to Face (F2F), and Blended Developmental Courses


The mixed results on the relationship between delivery methods and students; final grades in English, math, and reading developmental courses indicate, a specific delivery method may be advantageous for students taking a particular course. The mixed results from the study highlighted the importance of consulting students, administrators, and teachers regarding the most appropriate delivery method for each course. Without proper planning, students who enroll in traditional F2F courses may miss out on the benefits of incorporating technologies in their learning process. Similarly, ineffective blended and online learning strategies may result in students, negative educational outcomes, especially in developmental mathematics and reading courses. The findings indicated that some delivery methods might not develop students effectively into functional and contributing members of society. The findings have highlighted the need for using the correct balance of F2F, online, and blended courses to increase students' likelihood of achieving optimal educational outcomes.
