The research question to be explored in this project is to determine if the Borough of Manhattan Community College’s E-Learning Readiness Self-check led to a difference in persistence in remedial hybrid/blended online courses. Additionally, the study explores whether students who completed the courses performed better in grades earned, specifically based on small stakes assessments, learning activities, discussions, and exams. This proposal is for a virtual presentation session.
