Parent Survey Findings


Posted on Dec 4, 2014

Paula Burdette and Diana Greer of the Center have published their findings from the 2012 Parents’ Survey about their children with disabilities in online learning.

Here’s a short synopsis of the paper:

While research has been conducted on parental involvement in K-12 online learning, none of this research relates specifically to the parents of students with disabilities. Thus, researchers developed a survey around the following constructs: parental roles, instruction and assessment, communication and support from the school, and parental challenges. Researchers then distributed the survey to parents who had a child with a disability enrolled in an online setting. This article describes the survey findings based on 119 qualified responses from across the United States. In general, parents were pleased with the outcomes that their children were experiencing in online learning, but some issues still exist for educating students with disabilities within this environment.

And here’s where you can find the entire paper at the Journal of Interactive Online Learning:
