Abstract
The proposed study explores the success rate of students enrolled in the Math & Logic course at Chippewa Valley Technical College (CVTC). The Math & Logic course is a course designed for students in the IT Programming and IT-Networking programs. The course is currently offered using two delivery methods: the traditional face-to-face (FtF) classroom and a hybrid format. The hybrid format is a mix or blend of classroom and online delivery. The success of the students enrolled in the hybrid format as compared to students enrolled in the traditional FtF classroom is unknown. In the past five years (Fall 2006-Spring 2011), there have been three math instructors who have taught the Math & Logic course: Mike Davis, Joe Flackey, and myself. We suspect that the success rate of students in the FtF is higher than the success rate of students enrolled in the hybrid format. However, no formal study has been conducted to prove or disprove that assumption. This study will examine the success rate for students in Math & Logic at CVTC for the past five years to determine if there is a significantly higher success rate in FtF as compared to hybrid.
