“Only 16 percent of college students responded the quality of their education remained the same”
This is not surprising. Online classes were introduced suddenly to students who payed for a different experience.
The College Fix reports:
79 percent of students say quality of education worse with online courses amid COVID: poll
The results are in — most students are not impressed with distance learning.
The College Fix recently asked 1,000 students: “How has the quality of your education changed because your college or university moved its courses online due to the coronavirus?”
Fifty-four percent of students said it’s “somewhat worse,” and another 25 percent replied it’s “significantly worse,” for a total of 79 percent.
“As a senior, my classes were hands-on application stuff by nature. Online, I have learned nothing,” replied one Clemson University student. “Might as well have given me the degree in March.”
Only 16 percent of college students responded the quality of their education remained the same, 4 percent said it’s somewhat better, and 2 percent said it’s significantly better.
“Going online has helped me a bunch,” one University of Montana student stated. “I have social anxiety and being online has allowed me to finally participate in class discussions. I can also take my time going through the lectures instead of trying to keep up and missing a bunch of content.”
The online survey was conducted April 23 and April 24 exclusively for The College Fix by College Pulse. The sample was drawn from College Pulse’s undergraduate student panel that includes more than 270,000 students representing some 900 different colleges and universities in all 50 states. The margin of error for this survey is +/- 3.5 percent.
