The effects of primary and secondary language literacy in online learning

Abstract

This paper explores the affect literacy level and taking an online course in a primary or secondary language has upon students' perceptions, and overall academic progress in online courses. One particular concept, The Matthew Effect, purports that an individual's reduced reading ability will impact the uptake of information in other subject areas (Stanovich, 1986). Data gathered from online courses offered at a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) university indicated that an increase in perceived literacy level correlates with an increase in successful learning outcomes in online courses.
