Development and psychometric properties of student perceptions of an online course (SPOC) in an RN-to-BSN program.
Nurse Educ Today. 2020 Feb; 85:104303.NE

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE

Despite the rapid growth in offering online RN-to-BSN programs, limited information is available on student perception of online courses. The aims were to develop and to evaluate Student Perceptions of an Online Course (SPOC) scale.

METHODS

A quantitative study using a two-phase methodological design was applied. A convenience sample of 201 RN-to-BSN students was used to establish internal consistency and evidence of validity including exploratory factor analyses.

RESULTS

Three factors of student engagement, organization, and resources were verified. The overall SPOC had high reliability with Cronbach's alpha =0.98.

CONCLUSIONS

The SPOC is valid and reliable. It can be used in research and quality assurance/improvement work on the delivery of online nursing education.
