Students are currently given more and more options in postsecondary education be it the traditional format in the classroom, in a virtual world online, or a hybrid of the two options.  The Colorado Community College System (CCCS) offers numerous courses both in the traditional and online format. Recently in Colorado discussions regarding traditional and online courses have centered on science courses.  This study conducted by the Colorado Department of Higher Education compares students enrolled at the Colorado Community College System in traditional and online science courses. The second part of the study tracks these same students into a four year institution and compares academic performance in science courses.
