Presentation Abstract

Student completion is a key indicator of the quality of open and distance learning. This study examined whether student activity patterns in a self-paced course are related to successful completion of the course. Research hypotheses were that there is a relationship between students’ completion and time-based and sequence-based activity patterns. The study included 543 students in 89 different general education courses from January 2011- December 2012. The courses offered came from a range of disciplines, including humanities, math and science. Student dates of registration and assignments submitted were analyzed. The results of this study suggest that some student activity patterns in a self-paced course may be related to their successful completion.
