Epistemology, revision intensity, assessment scores in distance education

01 April 2018

The aim of this study is to investigate epistemological beliefs, revision intensity and assessment scores among distance education students. The survey contains 63 items and uses a 5 point Likert scale, collecting data ranging from strongly disagree, disagree, no opinion, agree and strongly agree. A question on how many hours a week do you spend on revision will be asked along with an assesment score (1-100) question from the student's last essay or report assignment.
