The purpose of this empirical research study is to compare students’ performances in an online setting versus a hybrid classroom-online setting in an introductory managerial accounting course. The research question is whether there is a significant difference in the learning outcomes, which occurs in these two different settings. The methodology used in this study includes scores from 12 weekly online assignments, two major online exams, and a final examination held on campus. The data collected represents three classes taught in the fall semester of 2010 (two hybrid classrooms and one online) and two classes taught in the summer 2011 (one hybrid classroom and one online). The results presented in this study only based on performances of students who completed the course. Results reveal that there were no significant differences in the performances of students in the online section setting relative to those in the hybrid setting.
