Does Personality Type Effect Online versus In-Class Course Satisfaction?

Daughenbaugh, Richard; Ensminger, David; Frederick, Lynda; Surry, Daniel (2002)

This study sought to determine if different personality types express more or less satisfaction with courses delivered online versus those delivered in the classroom. The methodology employed two online surveys--the Keirsey Temperament Sorter (KTS) and a course satisfaction instrument. The participants were 146 college students taking online and in-class courses in the College of Education at the University of South Alabama. The four hypotheses were that Introvert, Intuition, Thinking, and Perceiving personalities express greater satisfaction than Extrovert, Sensing, Feeling, and Judging personalities. Both descriptive and inferential statistics were used in the study. (Contains 20 references.) (MES)
