The education system has been in disarray since the disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. This research project plans to evaluate the learning process of in-person learning verses online learning. The purpose of this project is to provide an insight into online learning and the hope is to spark a conversation to improve it. The data for the project was collected from a high school located in Huntersville, North Carolina. The findings from this study are: (a) there is a statistically significant difference in means between the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 school year state EOC scores, (b) there is a statistically significant difference in means of the 2020-2021 EOC scores across at-risk level, (c) there was not a statistically significant difference in means of the 2020-2021 EOC scores across grade levels of juniors and seniors, (d) there was a statistically significant difference in means of the 2020-2021 EOC scores across team or individual sport type, (e) gender, ACT scores, 8th grade EOG scores and 2020-2021 EOC scores is the best model to predict the 2021-2022 EOC scores. These results imply there is a large learning gap in online learning that needs to be reevaluated.
