چکیده

هدف از این مطالعه مقایسه عملکرد دانشجویان کارشناسی ارشد رشته آموزش زبان انگلیسی در سیستم آموزش الکترونیکی و آموزش رو در رو در دانشگاه پیام نور، بزرگ‌ترین دانشگاه دولتی ایران و بزرگ‌ترین موسسه آموزش از راه دور خاورمیانه بود. به این منظور، عملکرد 1254 دانشجوی کارشناسی ارشد شامل 678 دانشجوی آموزش رو در رو و 576 دانشجوی الکترونیکی در 5 درس مقایسه شد. همچنین عملکرد 158 دانشجوی مرد با 418 دانشجوی زن در آموزش الکترونیکی برای پیدا کردن تفاوت قابل‌توجه در عملکرد آن‌ها مقایسه شد. نتایج نشان داد که دانشجویان آموزش الکترونیکی زن و مرد در امتحانات پایان ترم تفاوت قابل‌ملاحظه‌ای ندارند. همچنین دو گروه دانشجویان رو در رو و آموزش الکترونیکی در سه درس از پنج درس مقایسه شده تفاوت قابل‌ملاحظه‌ای نداشتند. اما در دو درس دانشجویان آموزش رو در رو به طور قابل‌ملاحظه‌ای از دانشجویان الکترونیکی پیشی گرفتند. دلایل اختلاف بین دو گروه دانشجویان می‌تواند به عواملی مثل اختلاف در دو نحوه آموزش، کیفیت نرم‌افزار و سخت‌افزار در آموزش الکترونیکی، و تعداد زیاد دانشجویان در کلاس‌های الکترونیکی باشند که لزوم توجه هر چه بیشتر مسئولان به این آموزش در دانشگاه پیام نور را می‌طلبد. بر اساس نتایج کاربردهای نظری و عملی ارائه شد.

چکیده [English]

This study aimed at investigating the performance of face-to-face and e-learning Master's students of Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) at Payame Noor University, the biggest distance education institute and public university in Iran and the Middle East. To achieve this, the performance of 1254 MA (678 face-to-face and 576 e-learning) students in the final exams of five courses were compared. In another comparison, the final scores of male (n=158) and female (n=418) e-learning students were compared to find any significant differences in their performances. The results revealed no significant difference between the achievements of male and female students. Furthermore, the face-to-face and electronic students performed similarly in three courses and differed significantly in two other ones. That is, the former group outperformed the latter in two courses. The reasons might be due to some factors such as differences in the two modes of learning, the quality of hardware and software, and the number of students in e-learning courses which highlight the necessity of paying more attention to this mode of learning. Some theoretical and pedagogical implications emerged from the study.
