Abstract Title: The Effect of Online Lecture on Performance in a Physics Class
Abstract: This poster will examine the difference in student performance between students attending lecture in person and students choosing to watch the lecture on video as part of an online class. The option to watch the lecture on video was implemented mid-semester in Fall 2012 allowing for a repeated measures experimental design. Students' performance both on conceptual instruments and standard assignments is examined. Student engagement in the class is also characterized. While statistically significant differences in engagement and performance are found between students using no video and students making extensive use of video, these differences vanish when the engagement or performance pre-video is controlled for. Student interaction with the lecture is also investigated through the students taking of lecture notes; significant differences both pre and post video were found.
