Presentation Abstract

The coronavirus has affected every one of us in some way or another. Elementary students have had to attend school in several configurations including: Full-time virtually (at home); hybrid, and in the classroom itself. In this study, elementary students responded to a survey which asked them, among other things, to identify whether they preferred learning virtually, or in the classroom. Questions on the survey included: Do you prefer learning virtually or in person? Do you think you learn better virtually or in person? Another survey was administrated to determine the teachers' general assessment of the students' performance in both environments. The teacher survey included questions such as: What was the average test score while students were learning virtually? What was the average test score while students were in person? Analysis of the survey data provides insight on which environment elementary students prefer and the environment in which they perform best.
