ATAR Notes - Online Learning

In light of the recent COVID-19 pandemic, we surveyed more than 2,000 Year 10-12 students across Victoria, New South Wales, and Queensland. We asked them about their experiences learning online, the impact COVID-19 had had, and the effectiveness of online learning in general. Here’s what we found.

 

Results:

Online learning preferences of students in Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland

 

How heavily do you feel your studies have been impacted by the COVID-19 situation?

Scale: 1 (“Not impacted at all”) to 10 (“Extremely heavily impacted”)

More than two-thirds of respondents (67.48%) reported an impact level of 7 out of 10 or above. More than 40% of responses were recorded as either 7 out of 10 (20.1%) or 8 out of 10 (22.36%). The mean average response was 7.06 out of 10, with a median of 7.

 

Do you think online learning is effective?

The results here suggest the jury is still out when it comes to online learning. Both “Yes” (53.13%) and “No” (46.83%) recorded more than 1,000 responses, with a slight preference for the former.

 

Do you think your school should incorporate more online learning options, even when school resumes as usual?

Interestingly, there¬†was a strong preference overall for more online learning options, with 62.24% of respondents voting “Yes”. The remaining 37.76% of respondents seem satisfied with the number of online learning options presently available, registering a “No” vote.

 

In terms of your education, how well supported have you felt through the COVID-19 situation?

Scale: 1 (“Not at all supported”) to 10 (“Extremely well supported”)

Results clumped around 8 out of 10 (20.38% of responses), with 7 out of 10 (17.89%) and 9 out of 10 (13.48%) also scoring heavily. Whilst all options recorded some responses, only ~10% (10.03%) of respondents recorded a 1-3 out of 10 level of support.

The mean average response was 6.66 out of 10, with a median of 7.
