Hawkins, A., Graham, C. & Barbour, M. K. (2010, October). Where are we losing them? (dis)Engagement patterns of virtual high school students. A paper presented at the annual convention of the Association for Educational Communication and Technology, Anaheim, CA.
This study examined course completion and participation patterns of student enrollments at Utah’s Electronic High School from 2005-2008. Using descriptive statistics, researchers found that completion rates improved with the age of the program. Certain disciplines had higher completion rates as well as numbers of students who engaged in the course compared to other disciplines. A high percentage of students never engaged. Implications of the findings are discussed as well as areas for future research.
