developmental math with traditional classroom, computer-based on-campus and
computer-based at a distance instruction using locus of control, math anxiety and learning
style. Doctor of Philosophy (Applied Technology, Training and Development), May
2000, 200 pp., 54 tables, 4 illustrations, references, 145 titles.
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between individual
student differences and academic success in three pedagogical methods (traditional
classroom, computer-aided instruction (CAI) in an on-campus setting, and CAI in a
distance education setting) for developmental mathematics classes at the community
college level. Locus of control, math anxiety and learning style were the individual
differences examined. Final grade, final exam score and persistence were the indicators
of success. The literature review focused on developmental mathematics, pedagogical
techniques and variables contributing to academic performance. Two parallel research
populations consisted of 135 Beginning Algebra students and 113 Intermediate Algebra
students. The Rotter I-E Locus of Control Scale, the Abbreviated Mathematics Anxiety
Rating Scale, the 4MAT Learning Type Measure, and an instrument to gather
demographic data were used.
It was the conclusion of this study that the instructional methods were not equal
with respect to achievement. In Beginning Algebra, the CAI students received
significantly higher final grades than did the traditionally taught students. In Intermediate
Algebra traditional students scored significantly higher on the final exam than did the
