With online learning growing across the P-20 spectrum, this session will outline what we are learning about our online students and what they are telling us about their learning online. Indian Prairie offers several online courses for students to prepare them for future learning in higher education, the business world, or in the service to their country. The presentation includes results of demographic analysis of students and survey results of student learning.

  22. 22.

(2002). Prediction success of virtual high school students: Preliminary results from an educational success prediction instrument. </li></ul>@IPSD
