  • Participants: Master of Business Administration (MBA) students in an accounting class at a university in the Northern United States Comparative study: Participants and evaluation instruments applied:
  • Instruments: a survey was used to compare students enrolled in a traditional in-class section, and another group in a blended-learning section in which the primary course delivery method was online, but in which students met in class on a limited number of occasions. Comparative study: Participants and evaluation instruments applied:
  • The results suggest that the two delivery methods were similar in terms of final learning outcomes, but that both may be improved by incorporating aspects of the other. Comparative study: Result:
  • Make meaningful comparisons between two delivery methods. Advantages of the two evaluation strategies Comparative study:
    • The survey was administrated only on one school and involved one MBA course in accounting.
    • Inferences cannot necessarily be made about other courses, institutions and instructors

    • Do student learning style, learning strategies and patterns of learning influence learning achievement?
    Question : Non - comparative study:
  • Participants: 99 students at Iowa State University taking two non-major introductory courses Participants and evaluation instruments applied: Non - comparative study:

A total of 78 students also took the Group Embedded Figures Test (GEFT), a learning styles test. Participants and evaluation instruments applied: Non - comparative study:
  • Results indicated that learning styles, patterns of learning toward Web-based instruction, and student characteristics did not have an effect on Web-based learning achievement. Result: Non - comparative study:
  • They use two evaluation instruments disadvantages: Not all students respond to the instruments used. advantages: Non - comparative study:
