Abstract

This study examines undergraduate business students' use of PowerPoint slides provided as a supplement to class attendance, textbook reading, and other traditional course resources. We survey students in 4 diverse (accounting, marketing, management, and information systems) lower-level undergraduate courses in which the instructor provided PowerPoint slides in addition to traditional course lectures and materials for student use. The effects of students' learning strategies were measured against class attendance, test performance, and overall course performance. Results indicate that there is little relationship between use of these resources and grades on exams or overall course grades, consistent with several prior studies. Further, we find that students do not view these supplemental on-line resources as a substitute for class attendance. (Contains 5 figures and 5 tables.)
