Abstract

The current study evaluated performance of 2443/2444 students and the use of WebCT. Undergraduate psychology majors at UT Arlington who successfully completed PSYC 2443 and 2444, Research Design and Statistics I and II, during the Fall/Spring semesters of 2006-2007, 2007-2008, and 2008-2009 semesters were part of this study (N=132). Students became more efficient users of WebCT over the course of the two semesters. Communication variables were significant predictors of performance (Lecture, Lab, and Total grade) in 2443 but not for 2444 performance. WebCT usage was predictive of of Lab grades in 2443 and all performance variables in 2444. The current project yielded some interesting findings that have not been reported previously, which has stimulated some additional thinking about technology assistance in the classroom.
