Title: A Comparative Review of Two Engineering Economics Sections: One Traditional and One OnlineAuthors: Paul Kauffmann, Joseph WilckRecommended Session: Engineering Economy Division(2nd Choice: Industrial Engineering Division)Abstract: This paper analyzes success in meeting learning objectives in two sections of anundergraduate engineering economics course where the professor, course schedule (day-to-day),lectures, assignments, and assessments were constant throughout the semester. The only difference isthe on line nature of one section and the face to face, traditional approach of the other. The specificcourse is also a university-designated Writing Intensive course and results will include comparisons ofthe writing assignments of the two sections. Consequently, the paper will analyze both the traditionalundergraduate engineering economics content and the additional objectives for various writingassignments. Comparative statistical tests on the mean, median, and variance will be evaluated anddiscussed for important assignments using appropriate rubrics (e.g., grades on assignments, studentsatisfaction, objectives assessment).
