We offered introductory psychology on the World-Wide Web (WWW) and evaluated the on-line format relative to the traditional lecture-test format, using a pretest-posttest nonequivalent control group design. Multiple sections of the introductory course were offered each semester; on-line and lecture sections were taught by the same instructor, the same textbook was used, and the same in-class examinations were taken. For on-line sections, mastery quizzes, interactive individual exercises, and… 
Replacing Lecture with Web-Based Course Materials
TLDR
Supporting the idea that small, interactive recitations are more effective than large, passive lectures, recitation attendance was three times as important as lecture attendance for predicting pre-test to post-test gains.
A comparison of in-class and online quizzes on student exam performance
TLDR
Despite the initial time investment required to generate online quizzes with Mallard, student and instructor experiences with the program suggest that it is a promising technology for enhancing instruction in higher education.
Prediction of Learning and Satisfaction in Web-Based and Lecture Courses
TLDR
The results suggest that commonly-used readiness questionnaires may not be useful in selecting students who will do well in and be satisfied with technology-mediated courses.
The Effectiveness of Web-Based Instruction: An Initial Inquiry.
TLDR
The historical findings of CBI as an appropriate benchmark to Web-based instruction are reviewed and there is little consensus as to what variables should be examined or what measures of learning are the most appropriate, making comparisons between studies difficult and inconclusive.
Teaching Courses Online: A Review of the Research
This literature review summarizes research on online teaching and learning. It is organized into four topics: course environment, learners’ outcomes, learners’ characteristics, and institutional and

TLDR
This work attempted to modify behavior by providing course credit in the form of short quizzes as rewards for using on-line study aids to preview each chapter, and found increased access to FAQs was associated with higher scores on FAQ-related midterm examination questions.
Student Behavior in an Online Learning Environment
While online courses/programs have become a critical component in the strategy of higher education institutions, the majority of the current academic discussions and evidence are from the
Predictors of exam performance in Web and lecture courses
TLDR
The demographic and academic profiles of students in the two learning environments were similar, with the exception of racial composition, and Hierarchical regression analysis indicated that race was a significant predictor of exam performance in the Web-based courses but not in the lecture- based courses.
A Case Study on the Differences in Scores of Undergraduate Students in Traditional, Online, and Hybrid Classes
The primary purpose of this research was to ascertain whether there are variances in academic performance between students taking an educational technology course in traditional, online, and hybrid
