Abstract

Increased technology in the university setting, mainly with course instruction has aroused considerable attention on student satisfaction and quality of work. However, few studies have investigated these two concepts together. The present study aims to provide some incite in this line of research with an examination between student satisfaction and the quality of work based on the mode of instruction. Ninety students at the University of Rhode Island in the upper level Communication 381 Research Methods course participated in this study. The results indicate that significantly positive relationships exist among the dimensions of the two concepts. Limitations and directions for future research are discussed as well.
