Abstract

Relying on survey research, the purpose of this study was to collect the data necessary to answer the following question: What are students' perceptions of the different asynchronous assignments used in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies (ELPS) program's online graduate courses? The survey, which consisted of closeand open-ended items, was circulated to 121 former and current ELPS students, with a response rate of 24.79%. The data from the completed surveys were analyzed to identify themes. These themes demonstrate that the participants found value in both asynchronous assignments examined in this study. In addition, the participants identified different benefits associated with each asynchronous assignment. The subsequent discussion of the findings focuses on the value of each asynchronous assignment, the importance of determining the purpose for using asynchronous assignments before assigning them, and the limitations of exclusively using one asynchronous assignment.
