Key Findings
 
  • Grade 9-11 students in Florida were more likely to earn a grade of C or better when taking an academic course online rather than f2f for both general online courses and credit recovery courses.  
  • Most subgroups of students were also more likely to succeed in online courses.  The success gap between online and f2f courses was highest in grade 9 and diminished through grade 12.
  • English learner students, however showed no difference online or f2f when taking credit recovery courses
  • It is not possible to determine from this study whether differences in course outcomes are due to greater student learning or other factors.
