EMCC has expanded our course offerings to include courses completed in 5-, 8-, 10-, and 16- week timeframes. Does the length of time a class runs affect student satisfaction, performance outcomes, or both? Relatedly, do students perceive their satisfaction or performance to be related to course length? With all other variables constant, does the length matter at all? I will investigate these questions using a questionnaire I developed in August 2014 intended produce quantitative data to learn more about the impact of differing course length on student satisfaction and learning outcomes. In this initial analysis, I will compare an 8-wk online PSY 101 to a 16-wk online 101, keeping instructor, course content, and semester constant to isolate the variable of interest.
