This project is designed to identify the major characteristics of students in the two simultaneous online garduate sections of Educational Research in the fall semester of 2005. The project primarily involves the quantitative survey method. Studfents' leanring styles, motivational strategies, and locus of control were assessed at the beginning of the semester. Quantitative data results indicate that online students tend to have at least intermediate computing skills, as well as have high scores in these areas: deep approach, self-efficacy, intrinsic value, strategic approach, using cognitive strategies, and self-regulation. In addition, online students tend to have internal locus of control since the mean of their scores tends to be low. Some of these results such as intrinsic value and self-regulation are consistent with previous research findings. Results in other areas add new insight to the study. The results of this study will have both practical and theoretical implications for online course development and instruction.
