Abstract / Video
This talk presents the findings of a UGC funded collaborative project which aims to identify factors that impact on student success in the 4-year curriculum (4YC) and to use the findings to formulate and provide better support to students. A website with online resources is under development to support programme review and to conduct standardised analysis such as student entry characteristics, performance of individual students, and assessment results across the programme. The use of data-analysis techniques and student academic records will allow us to review the outcomes of a decision or action, and to target resources to enhance student learning. While student success may be defined by successful completion of a university degree, the findings of a survey conducted with 792 student, alumni and teacher respondents has suggested that students and teachers sometimes hold different opinions. In this talk, we will introduce a data-driven approach to making decisions about curriculum design and student support.
