Many academics and early career professionals are tasked with assessing online contributions in graduate courses in education. Various methods suggest research has considered the use of rubrics and attempted to assess the level of critical thinking presented in online discussions, course design, assignment weighting, engagement in course material, relationships between peers, language learners and different subject specialists approaches to discussion forums and in some cases interpretative flexibility of the course and technology. In this correlational study, two data sets and four hypotheses were tested with the use of a correlational matrix generator: (H1) The “Time Online” will have a statistically significant positive correlation with the “Words Written” for both data sets; (H2) The “Time Online” will have a statistically significant positive correlation with the “Notes Written” for both data sets; (H3) The “Time Online” will have a statistically significant positive correlation with the “Replies” for both data sets; (H4) The “Time Online” will have a statistically significant positive correlation with the “Notes Read” for both data sets. Results suggest one data set presented statistically significant positive correlation in each category (p < 0.01) while the other data set only presented one statistically significant category (p < 0.05) for “Notes Written”.
