Abstract

This study employed a quantitative research design to examine the predictive relationships between: (a) learner autonomy and course success; and (b) learner autonomy and final grades in community college online courses. Learner autonomy was defined as the characteristic of an individual who exhibited intentional behavior in learning activities. The results of the binary and ordinal logistic regression analyses suggested that learner autonomy was a valid predictor of course success and final grades in community college online courses. The implications of the results are discussed in the context of early identification and effective intervention. Specifically, two interventions are recommended: (a) blended learning programs, and (b) advisory and counseling services. (Contains 3 tables.)
